New Labour Laws Hand Harvesting

November 19th, 2019

Labour laws are ever tightening. As of July 2019 Labour supply providers are now required to hold a license before they can trade.

This is a result of legislative changes that came about from constant complaints from employees (especially at harvest time) being underpaid.

We predict that hourly rates will become the norm over the next few years. The aim is to manage employees to work efficiently and quickly when undertaking vineyard tasks.

This requires good recording and attentive supervising. As a result, Pridham Viticulture are introducing an electronic time keeping program. People can always be let go if they don’t work to a minimum standard.

Communication with clients & wine growers is the key so we all understand that as an industry we must comply with Australian minimum wage standards.

Let's get started, how can we help?
