NCAE webinar focuses on labor program wages

The National Council of Agricultural Employers (NCAE) is presenting the second installment of its educational webinar series focusing on the Department of Labor’s (DOL) new Adverse Effect Wage Rate regulation.

The webinar will be moderated by Shawn Packer of JPH Law. Panel members participating in the discussion are:

  • Jeanne Malitz of MalitzLaw
  • Mark Martens of Agri-Placements International Inc.
  • Tom Bortnyk, JD, of MAS Labor

The webinar begins at 3 p.m. Eastern/noon Pacific March 21. Participants will be eligible to receive one Professional Development Credit from the Society for Human Resource Management upon completion of the webinar.

“Agricultural employers need to be aware of this damaging new regulation published by the DOL which will negatively impact their enterprise,” Michael Marsh, president and CEO of NCAE, said in a news release. “The webinar will cover and attempt to answer employer questions regarding this new rule and assist employers in complying with this onerous new burden.

“The rule will have costly consequences for agricultural employers and will be challenging from a compliance standpoint,” Marsh said in the release. “Our presenters are extremely knowledgeable in the subject matter area and are anxious to assist in building employer understanding of the new rule.”

“Our webinars are extremely popular and typically fill up very quickly,” he said in the release. “Please register as soon as possible to ensure you secure your spot in this important discussion.”
