Western Growers invites you to participate in a webinar on December 4, 2013, at 11 a.m. PST on the repercussions the Jensen Farms case will have on future food safety criminal prosecutions.  WG’s Jason Resnick will moderate the discussion and Sarah L. Brew, Partner, Faegre Baker Daniels LLP will present on the subject. 

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals (which includes Arizona and California) has revived a claim for immigration and travel expenses brought by H-2A harvest workers who claim that costs they incurred in procuring employment and travel to the United States dropped their pay below the minimum wage during their first week of employment in violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).
