New seasonal worker horticulture directions and obligations for providers

30 October 2020

Both farm businesses and labour hire providers have responsibilities for managing seasonal workers in horticulture. These are designed to protect regional communities and the businesses that operate in those communities.

New directions mean there are now some additional requirements for farm businesses and labour hire providers to help manage risks associated with coronavirus (COVID-19).

To help keep providers informed of the new directions, the Authority has written to relevant people and nominated officers for providers that have stated they supply workers to horticulture and agriculture.
