The Business of Vineyards – Part I: Joint Liability – My Employees Are Your Employees


Meadowood - 900 Meadowood Ln, St Helena, CA 94574


12:00am - 2:00am


As the business of grapegrowing has evolved, both vineyard owners and vineyard management companies' interests and concerns have become more similar. To reflect this, we have combined the Grower Series and Round Table Discussion into one exciting new four-part series, The Business of Vineyards. This series will focus on all aspects of running a vineyard business and address important topics relevant to operating a healthy and successful company.


Registration begins at 7:30am with coffee and pastries

Welcome & Introduction
Pete Richmond, President, Silverado Farming Company

Joint Employer Liability: What Growers and Farm Labor Contractors Need to Know Now
Erica Rosasco, Attorney at Law, McKague Rosasco PC

By law growers and vineyard management companies / farm labor contractors (“FLC”) have joint employer liability for the FLC’s employees.  This seminar will provide you with a checklist of what you need to know before entering into a relationship with a grower, vineyard management company or FLC.  We will discuss what must be in the contract and what should be in the contract.  We will also discuss the hot wage and hour issues to be on the lookout for, so that you do not become the next class action lawsuit.
