shock to learn that the practice of seasonal averaging in the agricultural sector is not lawful but it is a lesson worth learning earlier rather than later, as any enforcement action taken for breaches of employment law, with non-compliance, induces fines of up to $10,000 for an individual and $20,000 for a company.
It is certainly worth double checking that your wage records are compliant for all employees.
