Is it leagal for a corporation to claim a false exception to avoid paying overtime?

My husband's company(He is a diesel mechanic for Swift Transportation) Told him they do not pay overtime. Is that legal? I know this illegal with the exception of a few situations. The CEO claims one of these exceptions for not paying over time. I do no remember the specific letter in the fair wage act, but it is the one about working on a farm or on farm equipment. He, the CEO of Swift, is claiming the tractors(meaning Mack trucks) and swift trailers(18 wheeler) are farm equipment, thus anyone working on them is "repairing farm equipment" and therefore he is not required to pay O/T! ! And how do I go about changing it? Or what rights do the employees have?
