  ( Chapter 8 enacted by Stats. 1967, Ch. 15. )

ARTICLE 4. Registered Unloaders [56891 - 56893]
  ( Article 4 enacted by Stats. 1967, Ch. 15. )


Every person who unloads any farm product in a market and who is a registered unloader shall register his name, Federal Social Security number, and address and union affiliation, if any, with the commissioner. The commissioner shall supply each registered unloader with a card of registration. Each registered unloader shall carry such card at all times while employed or seeking employment in unloading any farm product in a market. A person within the definition of the term registered unloader shall not unload any farm product in a market unless he is registered as provided in this chapter.

(Enacted by Stats. 1967, Ch. 15.)


Every producer who transports any farm product to a market may register himself or herself, his or her parents, and his or her sons or daughters, and regular full-time employees, with the commissioner. Such registration shall show the name of the producer, the registration number and other means of identification of his or her own personally owned vehicles, and the relationship of the registrant to the producer.

This chapter does not prohibit a person so registered from unloading any farm product from a vehicle as to which he or she is so registered, and no such person is required to employ any other person to unload or assist in unloading such farm product nor to pay for any services which are not requested to be performed. The commissioner shall supply each such registrant with an appropriate card, which the registrant shall carry at all times while engaged in unloading any farm product at a market.

(Amended by Stats. 1976, Ch. 1171.)


Every produce dealer that operates in a market is responsible for providing that registered unloaders sufficient in number to do the work which is required are available at all times when any farm product is being delivered to his place of business. He is also responsible for having on hand at his place of business at all such times a responsible person to receipt for any farm product which is unloaded at his place of business.
