Sixth Circuit Holds That Worm Farmers Exempt from Overtime Requirements of FLSA

Jackson Lewis P.C. • October 15, 2015

Recently, the Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit applied this exemption to the operations of an employer who “moved to the United States from his native France in 1992 to grow worms,” and affirmed the district court’s decision holding that workers at Defendant’s Silver Bait worm farming operation were exempt from overtime under 29 U.S.C. § 213(b)(12).
