HSPRD Wins a Major Victory for Farmworkers

HSPRD wins a major victory for farmworkers in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.

In the case of Rivera Rivera v. Peri & Sons Farms, Inc., the court of appeals held that the Fair Labor Standards Act requires employers to reimburse agricultural guestworkers for their travel, immigration, and recruitment expenses during their first work week. This decision could affect employment cases across the country.
