DOL to Revoke Central Valley Labor Contractor's Certification after Worker's Death

The DOT says C.A.T. Labor Services violated federal laws.

The DOL has taken action in order to take away a Central Valley labor contractor’s permit to provide agricultural workers to local growers following safety violations that culminated with a vehicle accident that killed four farmworkers, according to a report.

The Wage and Hour Division is working to revoke the farm labor contractor certificate issued to C.A.T. Labor Services for failing to comply with the Migrant and Seasonal Agricultural Worker Protection Act, which required contractors who transport farmworkers to and from job sites to meet prescribed safety requirements.

“C.A.T. Labor Services’ continued negligence and failure to follow basic safety requirements led to four deaths and countless others being put at risk,” said Wage and Hour Regional Administrator Ruben Rosalez.
