USA: DOL survey of labor law compliance in chicken plants "inaccurate and misleading," council says
The National Chicken Council has described a U.S. Department of Labor survey of labor law compliance in the chicken processing industry as "inaccurate and misleading." "This report from the Department of Labor's wage and hour division gives an inaccurate and misleading picture of compensation practices in the poultry industry," said David R. Wylie, an industry attorney. "The report reflects the fact that the wage and hour division believes that workers should be paid for such simple acts as putting on smocks and hairnets, whereas in most plants workers go 'on the clock' when they actually start work. This has been the custom and practice in the industry for many years, and there is no definitive law or court ruling to the contrary."
