H-2A Program Adverse Effect Wage Rate for 2021

February 26, 2021

The U.S. Department of Labor published Adverse Effect Wage rates for Non-Range Occupations for the H-2A for employers making use of the temporary agricultural visa program on February 23, 2021.  The 2021 AEWR had been delayed due to litigation surrounding the Department of Labor's calcuation methodology.  As a result, the 2021 AEWR becomes effective upon publication.  The AEWR for California for 2021 is $16.05 per hour, a 8.7% increase over 2020, which was itself a 6.1% increase over the prior year.
