Alternative title:

The harvest help contract — a new legal basis of employment

Subject and Keywords:

harvest help contract   farmer’s assistant   disintegration of labour protection   civil law employment


The labour market policy that has been developed in previous years seems to promote employment based on the labour law relationship over civil law employment. The exact opposite direction is set out by the introduction of the harvest help contract. The rationality of its introduction into the legal system is explained by economic reasons — the need to help farmers with jobs which are characterized by increased seasonal intensity. Therefore, it is important to discuss the scope of its application both in terms of subject and object matter and the conditions under which farmers’ helpers should provide their work. Their differentiation of the working conditions in comparison to other employed persons should be rationally justified by axiological reasons.
