  • Federal and state farm labor contractor licensing laws: 
    New legislation including the imposition of greater penalties for violations and the addition of new agents by the Bureau of Field Enforcement will enable the Labor Commissioner to more effectively enforce these laws making now the right time to learn their ins and outs.
