Trade adjustment assistance (TAA) programs provide a vital safety net for U.s. workers and farmers impacted by the global economy. The TAA programs are operated through the U.S. Department of Labor and the U.S. Department of Agriculture, in cooperation with state one-stop benefits centers.
The U.S. Court of International Trade has jurisdiction to review agency denials of TAA, providing workers and farmers with an important judicial check on agency decision-making in these critical programs. This article reviews the court's TAA cases in 2008.
