About the Guide

Michigan Farm Bureau’s Great Lakes Ag Labor Services division has partnered with Varnum to create an easy-to-use guide for farm employers trying to keep up with sometimes overwhelmingly-complex federal and state employment laws.

The Agricultural Employment Compliance Guide provides practical information focusing on common employment law issues, such as the Migrant and Seasonal Agricultural Worker Protection Act, child labor, and work authorization matters, as well as summarizing the primary federal and state employment laws applicable to agricultural employers.

For further clarification, the guide includes frequently asked questions and links to valuable additional resources. The following topics are included in the guide:

  • Employee vs. Independent Contractor
  • Work Authorization - Form I-9
  • Migrant & Seasonal Agriculture Worker Protection Act (MSAWPA)
  • Wage & Hour
  • Overtime Requirements
  • Child Labor
  • Minimum Wage
  • Unemployment
  • H-2A Labor
  • Joint Employer Liability
  • Farm Labor Contractor
  • Health & Safety (OSHA)
  • Discrimination
  • Managing an Onsite Audit
  • Good Agricultural Practices
  • Employer Record Keeping and Posting Requirements
  • Affordable Care Act
