Next year’s border exception for the 2000 RSE workers comes with conditions which include:
  • Agreement from employers to pay workers at least $22.10 an hour;
  • Employers will meet costs of their RSE workers’ managed isolation;
  • The RSE workers will be paid the equivalent of 30 hours work a week while in managed isolation;
  • The countries wanting to send experienced RSE workers under this border exception must have agreed plans in place to take back both their workers coming under the border exception as well as other RSE employees already here from their countries when the 2020/21 season ends.
