Crew Leader Problems
If you are experiencing issues with your crew leader, contact Migrant Legal Aid for help.
Migrant workers often find jobs from recruitment by crew leaders. Given authority by the farmer, the crew leader may unlawfully abuse this power. It is not uncommon for crew leaders to overcharge workers for housing or food.
Migrant Legal Aid provides services that aid migrant farmworkers with their every-day life. In the case of crew leader problems, Migrant Legal Aid helps the farmworkers manage these problems by informing them of their rights.
If a crew leader infringes on a farmworkers’ right—to safe transportation, food, drinking water, handwashing stations or bathroom facilities—Migrant Legal Aid will represent the farmworker and advocate for them under the law.
