Seasonal & Part-Time Employees

Seasonal vs. Year-Round Employees #

The FJC standards cover both seasonal and year-round employees, part time and full time. Farms that are striving to provide living wages often try to extend the season or even operate year-round to provide steady employment.

3.7. Right to return to seasonal position

a. In the case of seasonal employment, workers must have the right to return for employment in successive years or seasons, in accordance with seniority, unless the farmer can provide justification for denying re-hiring.

Part-Time vs. Full-Time Employees #

Under the FJC standards, the benefits paid to full-time employees must be pro-rated for part-time employees.
