State Protections for Meatpacking Workers

January 21, 2015

We found that a 2007 law intended to protect meatpacking workers, the Packinghouse Workers Bill of Rights, has not been adequately implemented by the Department of Labor and Industry. We recommend that the department take additional actions to implement the law and that the legislature make some clarifying changes in the law’s language.
