DLSE Shifts FLC License Processing to Enhance Speed of Approvals and Renewals

In an email of March 25 to California Farm Labor Contractor licensees, the Division of Labor Standards Enforcement announced it is shifting its farm labor contractor examination process to an on-line vendor in the expectation that examinee success will improve, DLSE will be able to more efficiently deploy its staff to manage new license applications and renewals and backlogs for testing will disappear in the coming months:

We are committed to continuing to work with the FLC community to improve efficiencies in FLC licensure program in 2022 and have contracted with a vendor to provide FLC exams. On April 11, 2022, the vendor, Proctor U, will begin sending exam invitation to persons on our backlog of FLCs who have been waiting for an exam since prior to January 1, 2022. If you are waiting for an exam and have been since prior to January 1, 2022, you are considered backlog and should receive an invitation from Proctor U in the next 90 days to schedule your exam if it has not previously been scheduled. Once you receive the invitation, you will have access to self schedule an exam date and time that is convenient for you. After the initial backlog is cleared, Proctor U will administer exams two weeks each month. LRU will provide Proctor U with the existing wait list. Proctor U will then send emails to the list of examinees.

It is hoped this will resolve the licensing and renewal backlogs being experienced by prospective farm labor contractors seeking initial licensure, current licensees seeking license renewal and generally improve service to those who must obtain and maintain a California FLC license to operate their businesses legally.

FELS and California Farm Bureau have worked with a number of FLCs to help resolve licensing issues with DLSE in the last 18 months, and we continue to be ready to assist you with these problems going forward.  Please feel free to email us at This email address is being protected from spambots.
