ETA Provides Guidance on the Responsibility of State Workforce Agency Administrators and State Monitor Advocates in Providing Services to Migrant and Seasonal Farm Workers
Mar 15, 2013

The Employment and Training Administration has issued Training Employment Guidance Letter (TEGL) 17-12.

This TEGL provides guidance to State Workforce Agencies (SWAs) on the responsibilities of serving migrant and seasonal farm workers (MSFWs) through the American Job Center (also known as One-Stop Career Center) network and on the responsibilities of the State Monitor Advocates (SMAs).

The TEGL specifically addresses the topics of “services to MSFWs, “role of SWA Administrators,” and the “Role of State Monitor Advocates.”

SWA administrators are required to comply with the procedures outlined in the TEGL and the regulations set forth at 20 CFR Parts 651, 653, and 658. Administrators should ensure that SMAs and all other appropriate staff are familiar with the requirements in this TEGL.

The TEGL also provides the contact information for the ETA National Monitor Advocate and Regional Monitor Advocates.
