Section 780.0 Purpose of interpretative bulle-

tins in this part.
It is the purpose of the interpretative bulletins
in this part to provide an official statement of the
views of the Department of Labor with respect
to the application and meaning of the provisions
of the Fair Labor Standrads Act of 1938, as
amended, which exempt certain employees from
the minimum wage or overtime pay requirements,
or both, when employed in agriculture or in cer-

respect to agricultural or horticultural commodi-
Section 780.1 General scope of the Act.

The Fair Labor Standards is a Federal statute of general application which establishes minimum wage, overtime pay, and child labor requirements that apply as provided in the Act. These requirements are applicable, except where exemptions are provided, to employees in those workweeks when they are engaged in interstate or foreign commerce or in the production of goods for such commerce

or are employed in enterprises so engaged within
the meaning of definitions set forth in the Act.
Employers having such employees are required to
comply with the Act's provisions in this regard
unless relieved therefrom by some exemption in
the Act, and with specified recordkeeping require-

law authorizes the Department of Labor to in-
vestigate for compliance and, in the event of viola-

mum wages or unpaid overtime compensation
owing to any employee. The law also provides
for enforcement in the courts.
Section 789.2 Exemptions from Act's require-

section 780.1. Some are exemptions from the over-
time provisions only. Others are from the child
labor provisions only. Several are exemptions
from both the minimum wage and the overtime re-
quirements of the Act. Finally, there are some ex-
emptions from all three minimum wage, over-
