GFVGA Director of Food Safety Beth Oleson and GFVGA Executive Vice President Chris Butts also participate in the ag employment update.

Specific topics are:

  • The Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s new guidance that removes many safeguards previously required by employers;
  • The Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s reaction to the CDC guidelines and what to expect from OSHA moving forward;
  • An update on OSHA’s heat hazard and how it affects agricultural employers; and
  • New Equal Employment Opportunity Commission guidance and trends from the EEOC affecting your workplace.
