New arrangements to secure seasonal labour and working holiday makers

New resources have been released to help businesses which employ working holiday makers and other seasonal labour that may require special arrangements.

The Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD) has published a new Fact Sheet covering a range of COVID-19 workplace topics including exemptions from the traditional six-month work limitation with a single employer, travel across regional borders and other visa-related questions and information.

You can download this FACT SHEET which will continue to be updated as new information is confirmed.

It’s also important that employers are aware of their needs to prepare their workplaces to manage COVID-19 and support staff through this pandemic. You can also download further information on how to prepare your workplace for COVID-19, including information on work health and safety.

Members are encouraged to share this information widely with colleagues.
