Under the Horticulture Award, an employer and employee can enter into an agreement for the employee to be paid a piecework rate. A piecework rate is:

  • a rate of pay paid on the basis of how much an employee has individually picked, packed or pruned
  • paid to an employee instead of an hourly pay rate
  • a method of payment and not a type of employment.

Pieceworkers are still full-time, part-time or casual employees.
