Duties and Responsibilities of the Job:

Perform maintenance and record keeping on farm equipment including sod harvesters, forklifts, mowers, truck and trailers. This would include oil changes, grease, hydraulics, tires, brakes, welding and any other necessary repairs. The worker occasionally will drive farm equipment and trucks containing sod grown on the farm to various farm owned properties and to market. Housing is provided at no cost to workers who are not reasonably able to return the same day to their place of residence. Housing is not provided to non-workers. Free and convenient kitchen facilities provided at no charge. Workers will buy and prepare their own food. Employer agrees to offer the worker employment for a total number of work hours equal to at least three-fourths of the workdays of the total period beginning with the first workday after the arrival of the worker at the place of employment or the advertised contractual first date of need, whichever is later, and ending on the expiration date specified in the work contract or in its extensions, if any. If the worker completes 50 percent of the work contract period, and the employer did not directly provide such transportation or subsistence or otherwise has not yet paid the worker for such transportation or subsistence costs, the employer agrees to reimburse the worker for reasonable costs incurred by the worker for transportation and daily subsistence from the place from which the worker has come to work for the employer, whether in the U.S. or abroad to the place of employment. The amount of the transportation payment must be no less $13.17 and no more than $55.00 per day (and is not required to be more) than the most economical and reasonable common carrier transportation charges for the distances involved. If the worker completes the work contract period, or is terminated without cause, and the worker has no immediate subsequent H-2A employment, the employer agrees to provide or pay for the worker's transportation and daily subsistence from the place of employment to the place from which the worker, disregarding intervening employment, departed to work for the employer. Return transportation will not be provided to workers who voluntarily abandon employment before the end of the work contract period, or who are terminated for cause. Neither the ETA nor the State of Wisconsin Job Service are guarantors of the accuracy or truthfulness of the information from the employer. However, if any material misrepresentation is made by the employer, procedures of the Employment Service Complaint System at 20CFR 658, subpart F apply. No Clearance Order accepted or recruited upon by the Wisconsin Job Service constitutes a contractual job offer to which the ETA or the Wisconsin Job Service is in any way a party. Both entities only provide employment assistance.
