Florida Farmworkers File Lawsuits

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Ag-Mart Produce Inc. and three other agriculture firms have been named in five lawsuits brought on behalf of farmworkers who claim the companies cheated them.

According to a report on naplesnews.com, all of the lawsuits were filed in U.S. District Court in Fort Myers.  The lawsuits where filed by the Migrant Farmworker Justice Project, an advocate for farmworker rights in Florida. Four of the five lawsuits are class actions, and seek relief for more than 1000 workers.

In addition to Ag-Mart, suits also have been brought against C & B Farms Inc,  Everglades Harvesting & Hauling Inc., and Alta Citrus LLC, naplesnews.com said.  The class action lawsuits  are seeking  damages and relief for more than 1,000 workers, who claim they were paid less than the minimum wage required by law for work they did during the past two seasons, naplesnews.com said.  In some cases, workers claim they were paid piece-rate, in amounts that fell far below the minimum wage.

Naplesnews.com said that Ag-Mart managers are slated to meet with representatives from the Migrant Farmworker Justice Project later this month to try to come up with an agreement.  In a statement, the company said it wanted to “address any unintended payroll issues, and continue our efforts to ensure that our employees are paid fairly and fully for their work.”
