File picture

HORTICULTURE growers get a chance tomorrow to brush up on employment law compliance to ensure good employment practices for their workers.

Horticulture NZ has partnered with the Tipu Project to deliver a series of human resources workshops.

“The Tipu Project is an industry-led initiative,” said project co-ordinator Rawinia Parata.

“We’re looking to plan, support and create a sustainable and skilled labour force for the horticulture industry for the region.

The first free workshop will run from noon tomorrow at the BNZ partners building.

“This is for any grower or horticulture contractor who wants to learn and understand employment practices, particularly those employers who use a lot of seasonal labour.

“Employment agreements and contracts, record keeping, zero-hour contracts, piece rates and paid rest breaks will all be covered.”
