Migrant and Seasonal Agricultural Workers Protection Act


Migrant and Seasonal Agricultural Workers Protection Act

The Migrant and Seasonal Agricultural Workers Protection Act (MSPA) (P.L. 97-470) (January 14, 1983) repealed and replaced the Farm Labor Contractor Registration Act (P.L. 88-582).

The Act provides federal labor-related standards with respect to the transportation and housing of agricultural workers, sets specific requirements concerning payment of wages and conditions of employment, and deals with the relationship between agricultural workers, their employers and farm labor contractors. The Act requires certification of farm labor contractors through the United States Department of Labor (29 U.S.C. 1801 et seq.).
