On November 24, 2023, the Department published the Wagner-Peyser Act Staffing Final Rule at 88 FR 82658. The final rule requires states to use state merit staff to provide Wagner-Peyser Act Employment Service (ES) services, including ES to migrant and seasonal farmworkers (MSFW). The final rule also makes changes to 20 CFR parts 651, 652, 653, 654, and 658 to strengthen ES states provide to MSFWs and to enhance worker protections. For more information, Training and Employment Notice No. 10-23 and a webcast on WorkforceGPS, which provide a summary of the changes.
