Shippers often ask how long do they need to retain records before they can be destroyed? The California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA), Market Enforcement Branch and the Perishable Agricultural Commodities Act (PACA) both require specific record keeping requirements under their respective regulations.

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has posted tentative deadlines for 2021 EEO-1 filings. Scheduled to open on April 12, 2022, the EEO-1 filing deadline is tentatively set for May 17, 2022.  

The shortened collection and filing period is a significant change from previous years and represents a major change that could result in even more pressure on employers that were forced to deal with a difficult EEO-1 filing cycle in 2021 that extended late into last year.
