Changes to the Horticulture Award 2010.
Employment Law ChangesJanuary 10, 2018
The Fair Work Commission has issued an amendment to the Horticulture Award 2010.
The FWC amended the coverage clause in the Award to confirm that the Horticulture Award 2010 covers employees in a horticultural enterprise that are performing work such as packing, storing, grading, washing and treatment of horticultural crops, regardless of where that work is being carried out eg whether it is being carried out at the same location as the crops are grown or at a centralised washing and packing facility.
It is important that employers get Award coverage correct in order to ensure that they are paying the correct rates to their employees. For advice on how this amendment might impact your business contact Employsure on 1300 651 415.
