**CANCELLED** Questions About the New NYS Farm Labor Laws? Chat with an Expert in Fonda

January 14, 2020


Specialists will be on hand to field questions regarding the new laws. They are here to help producers understand the impact of new laws.  NYSDOL will provide information on compliance with the Farm Laborers Fair Labor Practices Act.  DOL will review how the changes will impact employer scheduling, payment of wages and recordkeeping. Updated materials will be available.

Additionally,  we will have the opportunity to review a new tool developed by Dr. Jenny Ifft from Cornell's Dyson School that will help producers calculate overtime costs.  Remember, farm labor laws will be changing as of January 1, 2020, so don't get left in the dark!  This is a program for all producers who have employees on their payroll.

Register by calling Cornell Cooperative Extension Herkimer County at 315-866-7920, or email herkimer@cornell.edu with your information, or online (link above for Cooperstown, see link address below for Morrisville).
