Tips to Navigate the Maze of H-2A

One of the most pressing issues facing the ag community is labor. How do we secure reliable farm labor to fill seasonal needs? Advertising doesn’t seem to work and if you are lucky enough to hire a U.S. worker, they may not stay more than a few days.

L.J. D’Arrigo, Partner at Whiteman Osterman & Hanna LLP, presented a webinar February 22 that helped attendees navigate through the complex maze of the H-2A agricultural visa program. During the presentation, L.J. provided an overview of visa requirements and procedures, compliance and employer obligations under the program. He also discussed strategies for achieving year-round coverage and joint employer filings for multiple farms and covered general filing tips and issues.
