US (MI): Four Star Greenhouse denies allegations in recent lawsuit filed by H-2A migrant workers

In an article published by Detroit Free press earlier this week, it was reported that six H-2A migrant workers from Mexico allege that Four Star Greenhouse and the agent it used to hire them violated labor, wage and trafficking laws in 2017 and 2018. Last week, they filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Detroit.

In a reaction to this matter, Four Star Greenhouses says the following: "Four Star Greenhouse’s success is the product of the excellent work performed by our employees and contracted workers. That is why we are dedicated to complying with applicable laws, rules and regulations and ensuring a safe workplace for all. We take the allegations made by former contracted workers very seriously and find it particularly disturbing that anyone would allege that Four Star withheld payments, threatened contracted workers, attempted or was involved in any way with deporting any individual who worked at its facility. That is simply not true. We are extremely confident that Four Star acted appropriately and lawfully at all times and that the allegations levied against our company will be dismissed in their entirety. We do not anticipate providing any further public comment on the pending litigation and look forward to our opportunity to be heard in court."
