Protection Act (MSPA) safeguards migrant and seasonal agricultural 
workers in their interactions with Farm Labor Contractors, Agricultural 
Employers and Agricultural Associations, and providers of migrant farm 
worker housing. See Public Law 97-470. The MSPA requires Farm Labor 
Contractors, Agricultural Employers, and Agricultural Associations, who 
recruit, solicit, hire, employ, furnish, transport, or house 
agricultural workers, as well as providers of migrant housing, to meet 
certain minimum requirements in their dealings with migrant and

respondents (e.g., Farm Labor Contractors, Agricultural Employers, and 
Agricultural Associations to disclose terms and conditions in writing 
to their workers. MSPA sections 201(g) and 301(f) requires that the DOL
