There are three main methods of accommodating workers depending on which property you are employed on.
1. Provide your own accommodation in one of the towns close to where you are working. You will purchase your own supplies and cook your own meals. In some cases facilities may be available for you to park a caravan or motor home on the client’s property and in this case you may or may not be charged a fee, depending on the client.
2. Our client, who you are working for provides accommodation with self catering facilities.
3. Our client provides accommodation with meals cooked for you.
Often, but not always, a “Board and Lodgings” charge will be deducted from your wages to cover accommodation and meals.
