Seasonal Business Labor and Immigration Webinar Series

Join Harris Beach PLLC and Farm Credit East for a series of four webinars focusing on getting the seasonal workers you need, legally.

One of the most pressing issues facing seasonal businesses continues to be labor – specifically how to secure reliable employees to fill seasonal and permanent needs. In this webinar series, presenters will navigate the complex maze of the H-2B non-agriculture and H-2A agricultural visa programs to provide an overview of visa requirements, procedures, compliance and employer obligations. Foreign labor options to fill permanent labor needs at farms and seasonal businesses will also be discussed.
