Purpose  This Subchapter gives managers, supervisors, and employees of the Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS), the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) and the Grain Inspection, Packers and Stockyards Administration (GIPSA) guidance on the electronic statement of earnings and leave (SEL).
