Federated Farmers initiative makes employing easy

Federated Farmers initiative makes employing easy

Federated Farmers has developed a New Employers Pack to help first time employers meet their employment obligations and develop better working relationships on farm.

“We want all employers to be able to put their best foot forward and this pack allows them to do that,” says Katie Milne, Federated Farmers Employment Spokesperson.

“The New Employers Pack is in response to an overwhelming demand for it from our members. In a member survey 97 percent wanted an employment pack produced. So Federated Farmers has created one, which helps farmers get it right from the very start, and that ticks all the boxes.

“As a farmer myself, I know farmers would prefer to know they are doing it right and understand what is required of them. This pack is designed for all farm types so I know all farmers will jump at this innovative employment pack.

“We have streamlined the process so it will save farm employers time, money and frustration. Ideal for hands on farmers who would rather get on with their day job, knowing there is security and comfort in meeting industry best practice.

“Employers can rest assured that they have all the information, requirements, forms and agreements that a first time employer needs. There is a brand new drug and alcohol policy as well as an outline of the correct disciplinary process, Federated Farmers also have a free legal advice line for members should they need further advice.

“No one enjoys being be wrapped up in red tape, and as market leaders in agricultural employment agreements we are excited to release this quick and easy way to avoid and understand it. I predict the buy in to this Employment Pack will be huge,” concluded Ms. Milne.
