UPEDA January 22, 2016 Meeting 

Temporary guest workers are a cost effective labor resource critical to many industries. However, 20 million of these workers are undocumented, exposing them and their employers to considerable risk. Over half of agricultural workers are illegally employed.

It's difficult for employers to keep up on the complicated compliance requirements. With the increase in federal enforcement and verification, all it takes is for a problem to arise is one worker in a traffic stop or one random audit.

It's easy to maintain cost effective loyal and compliant workforce when you join the Federation of Employers and Workers of America. They are a non-profit organization that helps you through the government mandated process of hiring guest workers.

FEWA provides labor retention and management services for all industries that utilize guest labor. They also provide education, legal assistance and lobbying activities that help employers and workers. They are your single point of contact to make sure everything is handled and they have a legal hotline for talking with an attorney and keep you informed on your employer and employee rights.

Simplify the complex process of ensuring seasonal employees are legally compliant so you can focus on running your business with the peace of mind that you and your workers are protected.

They communicate with all relevant regulatory agencies and are up to speed on the latest requirements. In addition to filing all of the paperwork for you on time, they'll walk you through the process to make sure you get the employees you need.

Join Upper Peninsula Economic Development Alliance to hear from Arnulfo Hinojosa, Vice President of FEWA, at the Munising Moose Lodge at 122 West Superior at 9:00 am on January 22nd.

Room block is available at the Holiday Inn Express (906) 387-4800.
