The agricultural industry employs over 200,000 people in New Zealand in a diverse range of roles, responsibilities and environments. From farm-hands to CEO's and everyone in-between our industry packs-a-punch when it comes to designing and implementing employment policy. Federated Farmers are at the forefront of working with Government and other agencies to design and develop policy that ensures our farming businesses and communities are well supported. We also offer a range of policy services and resources to help employers and employees 'get it right' - from free legal advice to specialist employment contracts.
