Western Growers announced Thursday it will host a webinar next week to cover the recently introduced immigration reform legislation. The webinar is designed to help you understand what this important legislation means for you and your business and how it will impact the agriculture industry.

Join us for “What the New ‘Border Security, Economic Opportunity and Immigration Modernization Act’ Means to Agriculture.” Space is limited, register today.

Date:

Monday, April 22

Time:

1:30 PM - 2:30 PM PDT

On this webinar, Western Growers President and CEO Tom Nassif, one of the negotiators for the Agriculture Workforce Coalition, will highlight the key elements of the agricultural worker program and the practical implications of the Senate package for Western Growers member employers and their employees.  Some of the critical takeaways from this fast-paced, sixty minute webinar will include:

  • The historic agreement forged between different agricultural and labor interests
  • How existing falsely documented agricultural workers are treated differently than undocumented workers in other industries.
  • How the future temporary worker program differs from the current H-2A program
  • The anticipated timing of the legislative process and implementation
