The Labor Forum will provide attendees with an opportunity to engage with industry leaders in in-depth discussions regarding the wide array of issues affecting agricultural employers.

“This year’s Labor Forum is shaping up to be the best yet, with hot topics that agricultural employers cannot miss,” Michael Marsh, NCAE’s president and CEO, said in a news release. “We have stimulating speakers discussing timely topics for employers where attendees can receive continuing education credit from the Society for Human Resource Management.”

Attorneys, academics, agents and representatives of federal agencies and foreign governments will be on hand to dive into labor issues facing U.S. agricultural employers. Rulemaking changes, cutting-edge reports on agricultural labor data and expert-led presentations on the latest legislation affecting farm and ranch operations will be highlighted, as will compliance issues relative to ag employment.

Also featured this year are concurrent sessions highlighting legal topics facing ag employers, tips to navigate the “administration’s activist regulatory hammer,” and compliance considerations for farm labor contractors, as well as how to responsibly recruit high-quality employees in a cost-effective manner.

The first day of the event will be topped off with a wine tasting reception featuring premium Washington wines from Mercer Ranches. Attendees will have the opportunity to interact with the forum’s sponsors, network with other agricultural employers and unwind after a day filled with engaging speakers and information.

“With all of the activity in the agricultural labor space this year, this year’s forum is an event not to miss,” Marsh said in the release.
