Migrant and Seasonal Farmworkers
Monitor Advocates at the national, regional, and state level help to ensure that services provided to migrant and seasonal farmworkers are fair and equitable to the services provided to other job-seekers. This means that migrant or seasonal farmworkers should receive all workforce development services, benefits, and protections on an equitable and non-discriminatory basis.
The Monitor Advocates support the needs of migrant and seasonal farmworkers by:
- Providing information about farmworker needs, characteristics, and concerns;
- Developing connections with a broad range of stakeholders, including community and employer-based organizations;
- Producing annual service assessments and analyses to promote a better understanding of services to farmworkers and to highlighting special efforts and accomplishments by states in serving them; and,
- Ensuring that all legal protections are afforded to farmworkers and that their complaints are promptly resolved
