According to the Department of Labor, Wage and Hour Division, Farm Labor Contractors are encouraged to submit FLC and FLCE renewal applications 90 days prior to the license expiry date to ensure renewals are processed timely. The agency previously recommended renewals be submitted 45 days out. Applications submitted fewer than 30 days out are considered untimely.
During an NCAE webinar, attorney Jeanne Malitz said that FLC renewals are rejected for such common mistakes as failing to submit the form WH-530 in its entirety; failing to cross out inapplicable sections; and failing to have the named FLC/FLCE applicant (not just a company representative) sign the certification attesting that all of the information stated in the application is true.
