Enterprise Agreements

As contemplated by the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth) (FW Act) an enterprise agreement is made at the enterprise level and provides terms and conditions for those employees to whom it applies. An enterprise agreement can have terms that are ancillary or supplementary to the National Employment Standards.

An enterprise agreement may be made about permitted matters, including:

  • matters pertaining to the relationship between the employer(s) and employees who will be covered by the agreement
  • matters pertaining to the relationship between the employer(s) and employee organisation(s) (i.e. unions) that will be covered by the agreement
  • deductions from wages for any purpose authorised by an employee who will be covered by the agreement
  • how the enterprise agreement will operate
