(Farm Labor Contractor fined)…The fine was ordered by the US District Court in Central California.
A Labor Department Press Release says Healthy Harvesting, Incorporated out of Holtville must pay just over $79,000 for its role in a 2017 fatal injury collision. The collision, in which one man suffered fatal injuries, was investigated by the US Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division. The single vehicle roll-over occurred near Calexico in March 2017. The investigation determined the Labor contractor failed to provide safe transportation to and from work, a violation of the Migrant Seasonal Workers Protection Act.
