WJM are able to provide detailed employment advice for both agricultural employers and employees.

As well as providing advice on the constantly changing world of employment law, we are experts in working with the specific issues that may arise in an agricultural context.
In particular, we can advise on the following:

• Drafting of contracts to protect employers against claims to the Employment Tribunal;
• Working Time Regulations and Seasonal Labour;
