Yesterday, California Governor Gavin Newsom vetoed SB 1102, the H-2A bill authored by Senator Bill Monning. Western Growers thanks all of our members who responded to our Action Alerts and reached out to their legislators and Governor Newsom requesting that the bill be vetoed. Your collective outreach made a significant impact on the outcome of this bill.

The U.S. Department of Labor Wage and Hour Division (WHD) has revised the farm labor contractor (FLC) application form WH-530 and several other forms related to FLC registration with WHD.  The new forms WH-530, WH-514 and WH-514A, which have an expiration date of 8/31/2023, may be used immediately, but must be used for any application submitted on or after October 1, 2020. Farm labor contractors are advised to replace expiring forms with the new forms and to train staff involved in the FLC registration and vehicle inspection reporting processes to use the new forms.
