Welcome to Austria! As a seasonal worker in agriculture you have rights! This is an info video by the Sezonieri-Campaign for the rights of agricultural workers in Austria. It provides you with information about working time and correct payment in agriculture.
Further topics of our info video #2: Always write down your working hours! Normal working hours, overtime & Sunday's work: How many hours are permitted? What is the hourly wage? Breaks, sick leave, pregnancy.
The workers union provides information in different languages and helps you to enforce your rights. The service is anonymous and for free. Call the hotline in your own language or write us an e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. You can find our contact details on: sezonieri.at.
Please also watch our info video #1 - you will learn more about your minimum wage and your labour rights as a seasonal worker in agriculture, and also about room & board, tools & protective clothing, vacation & remunerations, pension entitlements, family allowance and how to get back your taxes.
