2016 Labor Management Resource Guide
The materials in the 2016 Labor Management Guide have been compiled by the Farm Labor Practices Group (the “FLPG”). The FLPG is a group of key stakeholders including manufacturers, buyers, growers, government and non-governmental organizations, whose purpose is to facilitate constructive dialogue about farm labor practices. The goal of the FLPG is to help both farmers and farmworkers in production of labor-intensive crops better understand and comply with applicable labor laws and regulations, and to foster improved farm labor practices, where needed, that shape a worker’s experience on the farm. This guide combines easy to read and reference one-page fact sheets on topics such as payment of labor, housing, transportation, Farm Labor Contractors (FLCs) and more with U.S. Department of Labor fact sheets, templates, and information. It is a very useful tool for any employer in the agricultural industry.
