ALERT — Government Agencies Conducting Labor Sweeps in Central Coast Region

The Growers Shipper Association (GSA) has issued a notice to its members regarding reports that agents from Cal/OSHA, the CA Division of Labor Standards Enforcement (i.e. Labor Commissioner), U.S. Immigration & Customs Enforcement, and the CA Employment Development Department are conducting inspections and audits of agricultural employers in the Central Coast region.

Reiterating GSA’s message to its members, Western Growers urges companies operating in that region to be prepared and have your posters, policies, records, and other appropriate documentation available in case these agents arrive.

Please contact Jason Resnick at Western Growers if you have any questions or if you are visited by any of these agencies.
