The Migrant and Seasonal Agricultural Worker Protection Act (MSPA) requires a contractor to obtain federal certification prior to performing any farm labor contracting activities.
The farm labor contractors who appear on the following list have obtained a federal certificate of registration authorizing the holder to perform farm labor contracting activities under MSPA. Only a person holding a valid certificate issued by the Secretary of Labor may engage in farm labor contracting activities.
To promote clarity and increase transparency about who is eligible and authorized to perform farm labor contracting activities, the Wage and Hour Division publishes only a list of actively registered farm labor contractors and farm labor contractor employees. We no longer publish a list of ineligible contractors. Parties not on this list are not currently registered contractors.
The list contains the name and physical address of all current certificate holders, as well as the expiration date and the certificate number generated by the Wage and Hour Division. The list also indicates if the contractor has been authorized to house workers, to use vehicles to transport workers, or to drive such vehicles.
The list further indicates the date on which the farm labor contractor’s current doctor’s certificate (if applicable) and FD-258 fingerprint card will no longer be accepted by WHD.
