Labor Management Guide

The Good Agricultural Practices Labor Management Resources Guide (revised October 2019) was compiled by the Farm Labor Practices Group (the “FLPG”). The FLPG is a group of key stakeholders including manufacturers, buyers, growers, government and non-governmental organizations, whose purpose is to facilitate constructive dialogue about farm labor practices. The goal of the FLPG is to help both farmers and farmworkers in production of labor-intensive crops better understand and comply with applicable labor laws and regulations, and to foster improved farm labor practices, where needed, that shape a worker’s experience on the farm.
