Employee Housing Inspection Program

​Facilities that house five or more agricultural workers are inspected prior to and during occupancy on a routine and complaint basis.

These inspections are conducted to ensure that the facilities meet the minimum standards of habitation specified in the State Employee Housing Act. The California Department of Housing and Community Development performs audits of the Environmental Health Division inspection program annually to verify that the program is meeting its goals.

Three inspections are completed annually:

  • Water
  • Pre-Occupancy
  • Occupancy
