Horticulture Award

The Fair Work Commission made a decision to include a minimum hourly wage guarantee and a requirement to record hours worked by pieceworkers into the Horticulture Award. These changes took effect from the first pay period on or after 28 April 2022.

Fruit Growers Tasmania have developed a number of resources to help businesses understand and ensure compliance with the new award requirements. These materials provide an overview of changes to the award, as well as what steps businesses will need to take to ensure continued compliance with the new rules.

Changes to the Horticulture Award and the Fair Work Act were the focus of regional workshops facilitated by Fair Farms that took place on 29 and 30 June 2023 in three different locations throughout the State. View information from these workshops on our members website.
