New Federal Labor Law Poster – For Agriculture Employers Only

A new federal labor law poster has been issued by the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL)—but it is only required for certain agricultural employers.  

The “Employee Rights Under the H-2A Program” poster from the Wage and Hour Division is one of the new requirements for employers who employ H-2A visa workers that went into effect March 15, 2010.  

“The H-2A temporary agricultural program establishes a means for agricultural employers who anticipate a shortage of domestic workers to bring nonimmigrant foreign workers to the U.S. to perform agricultural labor or services of a temporary or seasonal nature,” according to the U.S. DOL.  

The new H-2A poster will not be added to the Poster Compliance Center all-in-one federal labor law poster since it is industry specific and not a general requirement.  

Information about the Temporary Agricultural Workers (H-2A Visas) program and a link to the new H-2A poster can be found in the U.S. DOL Employment Law Guide at
