October 20--  Attorneys for Vidalia Onion farmer Delbert Bland of Glennville say he will appeal a federal court ruling that he must pay $1.4 million in damages and unpaid overtime owed to hundreds of workers.

The U.S. Department of Labor filed suit against Bland Farms in 2014 claiming he has failed to pay overtime to 460 workers since 2012.

A Labor Department news release quoted the Southeast Administrator of the Wage and Hour Division, neWay Kotowski,  as saying the decision recovers back wages for workers in an industry where such violations are way too common.
