Enterprise Agreements

Enterprise agreements set out the conditions of employment that exist between an employee (or group of employees) and their employer. An enterprise agreement can also exist between more than one employer and groups of employees, or one or more employers with unions.

What are enterprise agreements?

Enterprise agreements include specific conditions for the one workplace. They are different to awards which are effectively an outline of minimum conditions for a whole industry. A modern award will not apply when a workplace has an enterprise agreement. It is important however to understand that the pay rate in the enterprise agreement cannot be less than the pay rate in a modern award or as set out in the Fair Work Act 2009.
