HOUSING

Some employers provide private employee housing (labor camps), which are often found in the agriculture and farming industry. If individuals (employees) experience difficulties with labor camp accommodations, such as uninhabitable conditions or health and safety issues, a complaint may be filed with the California State Department of Housing and Community Development.
