Farm labor contractor X-Treme Ag Labor Inc operated a van taking six workers home after working at Valley Garlic Inc in Gilroy in June 2015 that flipped over, killing four. DOL determined that the van was unsafe and the driver did not have a valid driver's license.
DOL sued Valley Garlic and X-Treme Ag Labor as jointly responsible under the Migrant and Seasonal Agricultural Worker Protection Act. Kerman-based X-Treme and its owner Isabella Camacho in April 2018 agreed to pay $46,000 in back wages and penalties and to be barred from acting as a farm labor contractor. Valley Garlic agreed to use only transportation-authorized FLCs.
