Kenneth Hyatt Fined $200,00 for Illegal Employment Practices

Kenneth Hyatt of Hyatt farms, Lake Wales, was ordered to pay $200,400 to workers by an administrative law judge after an investigation of his citrus and vegetable farm's employment practices from 2001 to 2003. Hyatt failed to comply with a law that sets minimum wage rates for foreigners hired as seasonal, temporary workers and requires that American laborers get an equal wage.
