CFLCA COVID-19 Webinar

With Erica Rosaco & Lupe Sandoval

Limited to the first 100 registrants


Over the past few days, we've seen schools closed, shelter in place orders made plus new and expanded paid sick and family leave benefits made available for workers. While agriculture is an exempt industry from shelter-in-place, the sick and family leave benefits apply to all workers, including farm workers.

FLCs need to understand the Families First Coronavirus Response Act which was just signed by the President this past week. Effective April 2, the expanded paid sick leave and paid family leave provisions may affect your employees and your bottom line. FLCs and growers should prepare for the possibility that a significant percentage of the labor force may not feel well enough to go to work or may need/want to use paid sick or family leave time to care for children or other family members affected by school or business closings related to corona virus.  

This webinar will explain why agreements need to be in place between growers clients and FLCS. Who will pay for the leave and will growers reimburse FLCs for paid sick or family leave? Will it make sense to consider layoffs and cease operations due to potential adverse economic impacts? Plus, large layoffs might trigger WARN act notification requirements to both workers and to government agencies. What does this mean?

Additionally, H2-A visa programs are impacted by the recent closure of US Consulate offices in Mexico. H2-A is a small yet vitally important aspect of the ag labor force in California. How is the border closure going to affect Ag?
