Registered Farm Labor Contractor Employee Listing
The Migrant and Seasonal Agricultural Worker Protection Act (MSPA) requires any employee of a registered farm labor contractor who performs any farm labor contracting activities solely on behalf of such contractor to obtain a Farm Labor Contractor Employee certificate of registration.
The farm labor contractor employees who appear on the following list have obtained a federal certificate of registration authorizing the holder to perform farm labor contracting activities under MSPA. The employee’s certificate – as well as the list below – will show the name of the farm labor contractor for whom the activities are to be performed. Note that the farm labor contractor is responsible for any violations of MSPA or its regulations that are committed by his/her employee.
This list is updated quarterly. The information below is generated as of January 1st 2017. Only a person holding a valid certificate issued by the Secretary of Labor may engage in farm labor contracting activities. A list of Ineligible Farm Labor Contractors can be found at http://www.dol.gov/whd/regs/statutes/mspa_debar.htm.
The list contains the name of all current certificate holders and the farm labor contractor whose name appears on each employee’s certificate, as well as the start date, expiration date, and the certificate number generated by the Wage and Hour Division. The list also indicates if the farm labor contractor employee has been authorized to drive vehicles used to transport migrant or seasonal agricultural workers.
NOTE: There are three ways to search the FLCE listing. This can either be done on this web page, in the downloadable Excel Worksheet or downloadable CSV file. To search on the web page, use the “Find in Results” search box to enter text (a name or certificate number, for example) and the table will display all records that include that text. Alternatively, use the up and down arrows in the column headers to sort by name or certificate number.
