DOL Launches H-2A Ombudsman Program

"As part of the Department’s continuing commitment to strengthening the H-2A Temporary Agricultural Program, the OFLC has established an Ombudsman Program whose primary purpose is to facilitate the fair and equitable resolution of concerns that arise within the H-2A Program community, by conducting independent and impartial inquiries into issues related to the administration of the program. The H-2A Ombudsman Program will also identify areas where agricultural employers and worker advocate organizations have concerns in dealing with the OFLC and propose internal recommendations designed to continuously improve the quality of services provided by the OFLC. There is no fee for using the H-2A Ombudsman Program." DOL, Mar. 2012.
