Our specialist agricultural employment solicitors advise farming businesses on a broad range of employment law issues, from day-to-day administration such as drafting policies and dealing with employment contracts, to representing businesses at employment tribunals in the event of legal claims.
Farming businesses face some unique challenges when it comes to hiring and managing staff. The seasonal nature of farming means that more staff will be required at certain times of year, often resulting in more complex contracts of employment and difficulties in managing temporary employees.
Historically agricultural businesses were subject to the Agricultural Wages Orders (AWO) which regulated some of the minimum terms applicable to farm employees. Whilst the AWO has been abolished for some years there may be legacy issues for long standing employees which we are well placed to advise on, having been involved with consultations and advice to farm businesses supporting the NFU.
