Do I Have to Pay My Interns

Do I Have to Pay My Interns

By Julian Parsons - Sydney

Do you have to pay your interns?

The short answer is yes and no.

Under Australian law, you must financially compensate anyone who comes to your workplace to contribute through ‘productive work’.

However, there are perfectly legal ways to bring on unpaid interns in a meaningful capacity that supports the goals of both employee and employer.

Cotton powerhouse in the Namoi Valley now in play to go to Auction 25 July

A recent 'sea change' decision by Andrew and his wife Kim Revell to join the macadamia industry on the Far North Coast has put into play one of the Namoi Valley's top-performing cotton farms.

Wire Lagoon, a highly-developed irrigation farm of 738 hectares (1824ac), has been held by the Revell family for 16 years. 

On July 25, it will go to auction in Narrabri with Landmark Harcourts.

Andrew and Kim Revell originally bought their Alstonville macadamia farm as a diversification move, but they became so attracted to the area that they now plan to up stumps and relocate.

It wasn't an easy decision, as the Revell family has been part of the Wee Waa farming scene since 1970. 

It was at that time they moved to the Namoi Valley from Kununurra in Western Australia. 

Andrew's parents, David and Helen, originally orchardists at Box Hill (Victoria), had been among the first wave of farmers selected to take up irrigation blocks in 1962 on the Ord River Scheme. 

After seven pioneering years on the Ord, they were drawn to the new cotton growing area then opening up at Wee Waa, where they started sharefarming.
