The Monterey County Farm Bureau office has learned that Department of Labor is currently conducting inspections and audits in the Salinas Valley on a random basis.
The focus appears to be on the following:
- child labor law violations
- transportation of field workers
- van inspections
- payroll record keeping.
Please make your field supervisors aware of possible inspection visits. Indications are that they will be in Monterey County for two weeks or more conducting these inspections.
