MassWorkforce Resources: Migrant Seasonal Worker / Foreign Labor Certification (FLC)

Foreign Labor Certification (FLC) Program Information

Information for Career Center Staff

The Massachusetts Department of Career Services (DCS) and the Department of Labor Standards (DLS), in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Labor, Office of Foreign Labor Certification, administer the Agricultural Prevailing Wage and Prevailing Practice Surveys. The survey is primarily administered by the DLS’s Statistics Program with DCS oversight. The results of the survey are used for the implementation of the Agricultural Recruitment System and H-2A Visa Program. In particular, the data assists in ensuring that both U.S. and foreign workers receive fair and equitable treatment. These surveys are the building blocks by which wages and benefits levels are determined for the agricultural workforce. Click here for more information about the H-2A Temporary Agricultural Program.

If you have any questions about the agricultural prevailing wage, job orders, or the H-2A Visa Program, please contact:
