We keep you informed of all you need to know about seasonal workers including:
- Relevant award updates such as the modern Horticulture Award 2010 (effective 1 January) where pay rates in modern awards, together with minimum wage orders and the National Employment Standards (NES) make up the safety net that cannot be changed to the disadvantage of an employee.
- Immigration & Visa requirements - did you know it's an offence under Australia's Migration Act 1958 to knowingly or recklessly allow an illegal worker to work or refer an illegal worker for work with another business? Know your obligations.
- Farm Biosecurity - harvest workers can unintentionally carry diseases, pests and weeds onto your farm. Find out what you can do to limit this risk.
