Greetings on behalf of the Farmworker Unit!

Migrant workers started arriving in North Carolina, and our office is diligently working to plan our visits to workers all over the state!

If we can help YOU get better prepared for outreach, please contact us! We can provide trainings or presentations for your office free of charge. 

In this issue:
Crop Damage in NC and H-2A Worker Rights' Slideshow

Many news outlets have reported damage to blueberries, strawberries, and other crops due to the recent unpredictable weather.

Farmworkers advocates must be on the lookout for workers who may be affected. If you meet any H-2A workers that do not have a lot of work because of the crop damage, forward them this slideshow about the 3/4 guarantee, a feature of the H-2A contract.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you encounter workers that need help or have legal questions.
