Responding to the significant increase in H-2A usage throughout the agricultural industry, Western Growers has created new insurance options for employers who use the temporary ag labor program. The new insurance solution covers risks specifically associated with the use of the H-2A temporary ag program.
“Western Growers is one of the few organizations that offers a tailored insurance solution that reduces exposure to losses that can result from utilizing the H-2A program. After noticing a rapid increase in H-2A use and a lack of insurance packages that cover potential program exposures, we combined our expertise in H-2A and workers’ compensation to offer this niche product,” said Jeff Gullickson, senior vice president of Western Growers Insurance Services.
WG representatives fully understand all the risks involved in utilizing the H-2A program, as they are continually advising members on how to stay compliant with H-2A regulations such as providing transportation, housing and meals for their workers. Now, WG has taken that ag labor expertise to develop a product catered to mitigating the major exposures of the H-2A program.
