Description: Various sections of the Migrant and Seasonal Agricultural Worker Protection Act (MSPA), 29 U.S.C. 1801 et seq., require respondents [i.e., Farm Labor Contractors (FLCs), Agricultural Employers (AGERs), and Agricultural Associations (AGASs)] to disclose employment terms and conditions in writing to: (1) Migrant agricultural workers at the time of recruitment [MSPA section 201(a)]; (2) seasonal agricultural workers, upon request, at the time an offer of VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:37 Dec 20, 2007 Jkt 214001 employment is made [MSPA section 301(a)(1)]; and (3) seasonal agricultural workers employed through a day-haul operation at the place of recruitment [MSPA section 301(a)(2)]. See 29 CFR 500.75–.76. Moreover, MSPA sections 201(b) and 301(b) require respondents to provide each migrant worker, upon request, with a written statement of the terms and conditions of employment. See 29 CFR 500.75(d). MSPA sections 201(g) and 301(f) require providing such information in English or, as necessary and reasonable, in a language common to the workers and that the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) make forms available to provide such information. The DOL prints and makes Optional Form WH–516, Worker Information— Terms and Conditions of Employment, available for these purposes. See 29 CFR 500.75(a), 500.76(a). MSPA sections 201(a)(8) and 301(a)(1)(H) require disclosure of certain information regarding whether State workers’ compensation or state unemployment insurance is provided to each migrant or seasonal agricultural worker. See 29 CFR 500.75(b)(6). For example, if State workers’ compensation is provided, the respondents must disclose the name of the State workers’ compensation insurance carrier, the name of the policyholder of such insurance, the name and the telephone number of each person who must be notified of an injury or death, and the time period within which this notice must be given. See 29 CFR 500.75(b)(6)(i). Respondents may also meet this disclosure requirement, by providing the worker with a photocopy of any notice regarding workers’ compensation insurance required by law of the state in which such worker is employed. See 29 CFR 500.75 (b)(6)(ii). The Form WH–516 is an optional form that allows respondents to disclose employment terms and conditions in writing to migrant and seasonal agricultural workers, as required by the MSPA. Respondents may either complete the optional form and use it to make the required disclosures to workers or use the form as a written reflection of the information workers may request from employers under the MSPA. Disclosure of the information on this form is beneficial to both parties in that it enables workers to understand their employment terms and conditions, while also providing respondents with an easy way to disclose the information required by the MSPA and its regulations.

of each person who must be notified of an injury or death, and the time 
period within which this notice must be given. See 29 CFR

    The Form WH-516 is an optional form that allows respondents to 
disclose employment terms and conditions in writing to migrant and 
seasonal agricultural workers, as required by the MSPA. Respondents may 
either complete the optional form and use it to make the required 
disclosures to workers or use the form as a written reflection of the
