The ALRB issued five decisions in 2020, and none in 2021. Administrative law judges issued two decisions. In Cinagro Farms, the ALJ concluded that a vegetable harvest crew was unlawfully fired in March 2017 for requesting pay stubs with required deduction information. Cinagro (organic spelled backwards) countered that the crew quit when their FLC Mike’s or Art’s Labor Contractor did not show up to supervise them, even though they had become Cinagro employees.
The ex- Cinagro workers went to work picking blueberries at Silent Springs in March 2017. The ALJ concluded that the crew was fired or not rehired for complaining about the lack of pay stub information, and ordered Cinagro to rehire the crew with back pay for any lost wages.
