MEMBER TESTIMONIAL

"The Workplace Relations Services provided by the VFF are invaluable to our business. As dairy farmers with an expanding business, we employ 10 or so staff members on various levels; from full time, permanent part time to casual. Naturally, with such a workforce, we regularly have questions regarding employment requirements and regulations. 

The VFF Workplace Relations Service is consistently our first port of call. Service is always prompt, to the point, practical and above all helpful. 

Whether it be support with a letter to a staff member about a tricky issue, process management for staff employment or termination or industrial issues, the Workplace Relations team always has a clear answer and no nonsense advice. 

We frequently advise other farmers as to the value of this service and the practical help available to assist farmers in the challenges of employing, managing and maintaining staff."
