New NCAE webinar on DOL’s ‘Farmworker Protection’ rule

The National Council of Agricultural Employers (NCAE) has the next installment of its educational webinar series ready for you to view. The “Detangling the Department of Labor’s ‘Farmworker Protection’ Rule” webinar will focus on the takeaways employers need to know about the DOL’s recently published rule, “Improving Protections for Workers in Temporary Agricultural Employment in the United States.” 

Michael Marsh, NCAE president and CEO, said, “Frankly, this rule was developed in bad faith and should be withdrawn immediately. Despite the injustice and the Department’s myopic perspective in publishing the rule, America’s farmers and ranchers cannot wait to start planning how to contend with this damaging regulation. This webinar will offer attendees valuable insights into how they can remain in compliance.” 

This interactive webinar was led by Chris Schulte, a partner in the litigation practice and labor & employment group of Smith, Gambrell & Russell LLP. Schulte reviewed the key changes and updates related to the rule about which employers should be aware. Attendees of this webinar will learn critical information about how this new rule will impact their operations. 

The webinar is available as a recording at ncaeonline.org/resources/webinars/
