Wagner-Peyser Act

Located in:

e. 5. C. Marketing the Agricultural Recruitment System for U.S. Workers (ARS) to agricultural employers and how it intends to improve such publicity.

Current Narrative:

DWD continues to provide agricultural employers assistance with their labor needs. When local domestic workers are not available, SWA provides technical assistance to growers to aid them in accessing the interstate Agricultural Recruitment System (ARS). We also intend on building a connection with the ISDA to help raise awareness among employers and agriculture organizations. Our local office staff continues to provide farm labor contractors assistance in preparing applications for certification within the U.S. Department of Labor. The SWA’s advocacy team regularly provides an overview of this service to agricultural employers statewide. The SWA, along with the business service consultants, will engage in an ARS and Agricultural Employer Service training. The training will also be provided to all 12 workforce regions. This training will consist of posting jobs on Indiana’s labor exchange system, conducting local recruitment events or job fairs at the employment offices, and familiarizing staff with terms and conditions of employment.
