The Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG) is now managing Georgia’s Foreign Labor Certification Program, previously overseen by the Georgia Department of Labor (GDOL). WorkSource Georgia, a division of TCSG, assumed the responsibility of providing employers with the U.S. Department of Labor’s mandated foreign labor certification services, which includes dedicated support to employers navigating the temporary foreign labor H-2A and H-2B processes.
“TCSG is excited to transition the Foreign Labor Certification program to WorkSource Georgia. Our collaboration with GDOL has facilitated a seamless transfer of services,” stated TCSG Commissioner Greg Dozier. “We aim to build upon the foundation established by GDOL, focusing on creating a robust workforce for Georgia employers. We are deeply appreciative of their assistance and knowledge during this transformative phase.”
Foreign labor certification programs permit U.S. employers to hire foreign workers on a temporary or permanent basis to fill jobs essential to the U.S. economy. Through the support and collaboration of GDOL leadership, the transfer of experienced, knowledgeable staff has led to a seamless transition with no interruption to services for Georgia employers.
“H2-A and H2-B workers play an important role for employers—especially our farmers,” said Dozier. “Our goal is to take the excellent work that GDOL has done and expand the FLC program by adding staff to manage the growing demand. We want to ensure that we continue meeting employer needs.”
