Worker Claim Against Mountaire Farms Dismissed in North Carolina Federal Court


Chief District Judge Richard E Meyers granted a petition by Mountaire Farms to dismiss a lawsuit filed in January 2023 by employees at a North Carolina plant.


At issue was the demand by workers that they be paid overtime for donning and doffing protective gear before and after meal periods.


Mountaire Farms argued that company was subject to the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act and accordingly exempt from the demanded payments based on compliance with overtime and minimum wage coverage.
