Woolworths Group has welcomed the release of new resources by the Fair Work Ombudsman to assist suppliers meet responsible sourcing requirements.
The Horticulture Showcase makes it easier for suppliers and workers in the horticulture industry to access information and resources on workplace laws.
The online hub contains information, tools and resources tailored to the horticulture and viticulture industries, covering the topics most relevant to growers and workers, including:
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.
The additional resources will support our suppliers to meet the requirements of our Responsible Sourcing Program.
