In regard to your inquiry about whether oz nor te, Sopt West
Florida Water Management District mi't cit with a Wage
and Hour Laws the definition of employer herein
specifically excludes any state or political sub--divisiin
of the state (with the exception of people employed 1n a
hospital institution or school).
So the answerto your question would seem to titn, on
whether or not the employees of the South~st l orida
Water Management District are State Emplo ees, if they
are I would say that they are clearly ex t. It would
appear that they would: -oM probably be tate Employees
since as you say in your memo the Attorny General hid

Memo to: TOM MARKS
From: MYRON GIBBONS
Please check to see if the Southwest Florida Water Management
District must comply with the Wage & Hour Laws as far as its
employees are concerned, whether the minimum wage is applicable,
and whether or not, on overtime, it is required to pay more than
straight time pay -- in other words, does it have to pay time and
a half for overtime.
The Southwest Florida Water Management District is a public
corporation and has been determined by the Attorney General to
be a State Agency.
