perform covered work for an employer who used more than 500 man-days of farm labor in any 
calendar quarter of the preceding year. A man-day means any day when an employee (except for 
a member of the employer’s immediate family) does agricultural work for at least one hour.
Note: Under specific exemptions in the law, employers do not have to pay the minimum wage to 
the following:
• Members of the employer’s immediate family;
• Local hand-harvest workers who are paid on a piece-rate basis and who worked fewer 
than 13 weeks in agriculture during the preceding calendar year;
• Migrant hand-harvest workers 16 and younger who are employed on the same farm as 
their parents and who receive the same piece rates as employees older than 16 working on 
the same farm;
• Workers mainly engaged in the range production of livestock.

penalties for each willful or repeated violation of the minimum wage or overtime pay provisions 
of the law. Civil money penalties may also be assessed for violations of the FLSA’s child labor 
provisions. Heightened civil money penalties may be assessed for each chil\
d labor violation 
that results in the death or serious injury of any minor employee, and such as\
sessments may 
be doubled when the violations are determined to be willful or repeated. The law also prohibits 
retaliating against or discharging workers who file a complaint or participate in any proceeding 
under the FLSA.
