Instructions for Reporting Agricultural Workers






  • Agricultural workers are workers directly hired and paid by the farm operation to perform work on a farm or ranch in connection with the production of agricultural products.


  • Include part-time workers, paid family members, hired managers, and workers on paid leave.


  • Do not include workers hired through a contractor, custom workers (workers hired to use their machines to perform a service on the farm e.g., combining, fertilizing), retail workers, or value added workers (workers who materially alter the form of the product produced e.g., winery, dairy manufacturing plant workers).


  • Report workers under the worker code (provided on page 5) in which they are working, not under the worker code for which they have been trained.


  • If the worker performs work in two or more worker codes, report them under the worker code that requires the highest level of skill. If there is no measurable difference in skill requirements, report workers under the worker code in which they spend the most time.

Shape2


In Sections 1 and 2, report total hours by worker code for the week specified in the questions.


TOTAL HOURS


Total hours are the sum of base and overtime hours worked.


BASE HOURS


Base hours are hours worked at the employee’s regular rate of pay. For salaried employees, report the standard amount of hours worked on your operation.

OVERTIME HOURS


Overtime hours are hours worked that are paid at an amount above the employee’s regular rate of pay.
























Instructions for Reporting Wages


Shape3


In Sections 1 and 2, report total wages by worker code for the week specified in the questions.


GROSS WAGES


Gross wages are the total amount paid to workers before taxes and other deductions. Include the worker’s share of social security and unemployment insurance, but exclude the employer’s share. Include in-kind payments (e.g., agricultural product like a side of beef, bushels of grain, etc.) provided in lieu of wages for work done. In-kind payments do not include benefits such as housing, meals or insurance.

BASE WAGES


Base wages are the minimum amount paid and do not include bonuses, overtime pay, commissions. For employees on an incentive system, base wages are the minimum amount guaranteed. Include in-kind payments.


BONUS WAGES


Bonus wages are wages paid in addition to the base wages. These include performance pay (e.g., piece rate pay beyond base wage), hazard pay, and bonuses that are paid each pay period. Commissions should also be reported under bonus wages. Do not include end of the season bonuses.


OVERTIME WAGES


Overtime wages are the wages paid for the overtime hours.
