This workshop aims to help West Michigan's agricultural employers meet farm labor regulations and provide education about alternative sources of farm workers. Presenters will address different ways growers can locate labor, including H2A, the newly improved Agricultural Recruitment System and labor contractors. Speakers will also provide updates on compliance with employer regulations, including an update from the Department of Homeland Security, how to ready housing for H2A, small employer health plans under the Affordable Health Care Act and on-farm issues to address to ensure compliance with DOL regulations. Michigan Works and Telamon will also discuss resources they can provide for local employers.
The cost of the workshop is $15 and includes all conference materials, morning refreshments and lunch. Please use the attached form to register, or contact Kathryn Walicki at 231-873-2129.
