Piecework Rates and Agreements

Piece rates
A piece rate is where an employee gets paid by the piece. This means the employee gets a pay rate for the amount picked, packed, pruned or made. When piece rates are paid, they apply instead of the hourly or weekly pay rate. An employee can be hired to work a mix of piece rates and hourly rate shifts.

Piecework agreement
You can access an interactive tool to help assist in the preparation of a Piecework Agreement. The tool will ask you simple questions and use your answers to tailor a piecework agreement. You will be able to save and edit the agreement at the end.
