You have a right to safe and decent housing. In most circumstances, the housing must be:
- Inspected: each year before anyone moves in, the building must be inspected and the boss must post the inspection permit.
- Safe: the building must be safe, with no electrical problems and have clean water, etc. This includes working smoke alarms and fire extinguishers.
- Clean: the garbage must be removed, the bathrooms must be clean, and sufficient storage for your food must be provided, etc.
- Posted: if there are charges or expenses for the housing, the information must be posted.
You should help keep the building and grounds clean. Report any problems to your boss or camp supervisor, and allow government inspectors to enter your quarters to inspect the building. Contact us if you have other questions or problems about camp conditions.
Also, discrimination against you because of your race, national origin, and some other reasons is illegal . If you believe you have been discriminated against, contact the legal services office in your state.
