Agricultural Wages Board to be abolished on 25 June

The Agricultural Wages Board is expected to be abolished on 25 June with the implementation of the relevant provision of the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Act.

The act received Royal Assent on 25 April and the next step is to implement the abolition provision with the relevant Commencement Order.

The current Agricultural Wage Order (AWO) will remain in place until 1 October, and applications to Agricultural Dwelling House Advisory Committees will be permitted until that date.

The Commencement Order will include provisions to allow agricultural workers to bring complaints of underpayments or non-compliance with the AWO before 1 October 2013.
