In terms of housing, persons who own or control housing for farm workers must ensure that certain housing standards are met.  These standards include:

  • structurally sound housing
  • housing free from insects and rodents
  • beds for each person at least 3 feet apart and 12 inches off the floor
  • lights that work and safe electrical wiring
  • sanitary toilets
  • safe drinking water and showers with a sufficient amount of hot and cold water
  • garbage collected at least twice a week

These standards are applied even if farm workers are housed in a hotel.
