Evaluating Training Return On Investment
10-11am June 8, 2023

Free for CLFCA Members, $25 nonmembers • Register Here

Every year time, money, and effort is spent training workers- but how do you know if you’re being effective or spinning your wheels? Are you just ‘checking the box’ and collecting a sign in sheet, or are your employees retaining information and applying the knowledge to be safer, better, workers? These are not just questions we ask ourselves, but Cal/OSHA too; inspectors can go beyond just verifying training records and ask workers questions to determine if your trainings were actually effective. Join us to learn about best practices for effective and efficient training methods and how to evaluate your return on investment for trainings.

The DOL Strikes Again: Field Access Training
March 7, 2023

The Federal Department of Labor (DOL) is out and hunting farm labor contractors and growers alike that haven't been dotting i's and crossing t's. Additionally, California has increased onsite visits from its Labor Enforcement Task Force (LETF). Most employers are unprepared for what comes next and citations can be hefty and even include criminal prosecution in the worst cases.

Don't just hope to fly under the radar- Get ready for your next inspection with field access training. Employers need to know their rights before the government shows up. How you handle an investigation can make the difference between being heavily fined, or walking away unscathed.
