Hiring Asylees Into Agriculture & Food Manufacturing Jobs

  • Friday, April 5, 2024, 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

New York City has experienced an influx of asylum seekers. These individuals represent a new pool of labor available to agricultural employers. Many come with work experience in agriculture and food manufacturing from their home country. All are eager to find full-time employment.

This webinar will share what we have learned about asylee skills and interests, services that the NYS Department of Labor is providing to employers and asylees authorized to work, and experiences of agricultural employers who have successfully integrated asylees and refugees into their workforces. Learn how to prepare to accept asylees as part of your labor pool.

Webinar held by Cornell Agricultural Workforce Development, Cornell Small Farms, and Dairy Foods Extension.
