ENFIELD, Conn. — One of the most pressing issues facing the ag community is labor. How do we secure reliable farm labor to fill seasonal needs? Advertising doesn’t seem to work and if you are lucky enough to hire U.S. workers, they may not stay more than a few days. To help northeast producers navigate the complex maze of the H-2A agricultural visa program, Farm Credit East is hosting a webinar next Thursday at 11 a.m. Participation is free.
Leonard D’Arrigo, Partner at Whiteman Osterman & Hanna LLP, will present this webinar which will provide an overview of visa requirements and procedures, compliance and employer obligations under the program. He will also discuss strategies for achieving year-round coverage and joint employer filings for multiple farms.
This webinar follows a session Mr. D’Arrigo presented for Farm Credit East late last year on I-9 Compliance and Immigration Enforcement. The recording from that webinar is available on FarmCreditEast.com. Due to the importance of this topic, Farm Credit East is pleased to again bring Mr. D’Arrigo’s expertise to Northeast producers.
Join us on Feb 22 from 11 a.m. to noon to better understand how to navigate the complex maze of the H-2A agricultural visa program. This webinar is free to participate. Visit FarmCreditEast.com/webinars for registration information.
