Agricultural Workers

H-2A Program

Agricultural employers can receive assistance in obtaining farm workers through the H-2A program.  

Employers must show that there are no local workers available for the job.  Applications are reviewed to determine whether prevailing hourly wages, working conditions, and housing and transportation arrangements have an adverse effect on domestic workers.

Migrant & Seasonal Farm Workers

Many migrant farm workers travel to Tennessee each year to help with the cultivating and harvesting of several crops in specific regions of the state. Through our Migrant and Seasonal Farm Worker Program, we help farm workers and the employers who hire them.
