Before you begin: To prepare your piecework agreement you'll need to:
- confirm that either the Horticulture Award or the Wine Industry Award applies to the employee; and
- know the piecework rates that you’re offering the employee.
The requirements for a piecework agreement may be different under an applicable enterprise agreement.
The piecework rates must be sufficient to meet the award requirements, and should take into consideration factors such as the experience of the workforce, the size of the operation and the quality of the crop. Your piecework rates need to be regularly reviewed to ensure that you meet any changes to the award or the working conditions.
Find more information on setting and reviewing piecework rates on the Pay and piecework rates page.
