Workshops aim to give farmers a legal leg-up

Throughout May and June, NSW Farmers’ industrial relations team will be running a series of workshops across the state specifically for the dairy industry.

The workshops will be a useful opportunity for dairy farmers to get a greater understanding of their employer obligations under law as well as strategies for effective workplace relations.

The workshops will cover in detail provisions of the Pastoral Award, as well as discussing employment lifecycle, performance management, tips to minimise risks when executing a termination of employment, the Fair Work Act 2009 as well as recent developments in workplace relations law.

NSW Farmers’ Industrial Relations Manager Gracia Kusuma said busy farmer operators often found it difficult to stay abreast of the many legislative requirements placed on them as employers.

“Knowledge and understanding is critical when it comes to workplace relations. It ensures that farmers are well equipped to effectively manage their workforce,” she said.

“These workshops are part of NSW Farmers’ ongoing strategy to provide practical benefits and on-going support to members which is aimed at empowering them to elevate the productivity of their farm enterprise.”

The workshops are free for members of NSW Farmers with non-members being charged a small fee. Register online via our website, email [email protected]南京夜网.au or call (02) 9478 100.
