  • Pay & piecework rates
  •  Workplace health & safety
  •  Hours of work & overtime
  • Deductions for accommodation, transport & job finding
  •  Sourcing labour and how to use labour hire lawfully contracting
  •  Ending employment
  •  Record keeping
  • Overseas workers

The Showcase also includes a series of educational videos to assist growers and workers to understand their rights and meet their obligations and an anonymous self-assessment tool that growers can use to understand their current level of compliance and get tailored feedback and help. Importantly, information is available in key languages of migrant workers in fresh food supply chains.
