Last May, the United States Department of Labor (DOL) along with the Department of Agriculture (USDA), the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Department of State, announced a coordinated effort to modernize and streamline the application process for the H-2A temporary agricultural visa program. This is welcome news to our industry.

In August 2016, the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment published updated warning regulations under the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act (Proposition 65) and provided a two-year transition period for compliance. Now companies need to be in compliance with the updated warning regulations. Successfully navigating Prop. 65 is a simple way to minimize the risk of lawsuits in California. Are you compliant?
