With recent changes to minimum wage and overtime laws, keeping up with regulations and documentation requirements can be a complex task for small farms and ag businesses. Experts will be on hand to sort out what really impacts ag employers.
The new Worker Protection Standards (WPS) go into effect January 2, 2017. WPS is an EPA regulation designed to protect ag employees who work around registered pesticides. This session will discuss WPS compliance, including training, record keeping and posting requirements. Pesticide credits to be offered.
Advance registration required at least three days prior to the program. Register by calling (877) 740-2666, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or online.
