Agricultural employment law

The agricultural community is affected as much as any other sector by the ever-changing nature of employment law. We act for thousands of businesses across the agricultural and many other sectors, whom we help not only to respond to employment issues that arise but also to set up their contacts, policies, and procedures in such a way as to avoid problems arising in the first place.

More often than not farms tend to be a family run business with a high dependency on seasonal workers. The need for flexible approaches to working hours can add another level of complexity. Our solicitors are extremely experienced in the agricultural sector and can draft employment contracts that are designed to suit your particular situation.
