Farms


Farms are employers under the DBL. Farmers do not have to provide disability benefits coverage for their "farm laborers", but may cover them voluntarily. Farm laborers are defined as employees that perform farm-specific duties such as planting, sowing etc. Those employees that perform non-farm specific duties such as bookkeeping, truck driver, retail sales are required to be covered (12 NYCRR §355.2).
