Company agreements are agreements concluded at company level which lay down the minimum working conditions applicable to a group of workers and to an employer. If you are looking for an agreement and cannot find it, company agreements must not contain illegal content (for example. B discriminatory or indiscriminate conditions). Registered agreements are valid until terminated or issued. Some employees are not covered by a bonus or company agreement. For these workers, a national minimum wage regulation provides a safety net for minimum wages. Modern company agreements and bonuses include minimum rights to wages and working conditions. National Employment Standards (NES) are minimum standards that cannot be repealed by the terms of company agreements or bonuses. Company agreements are collective agreements concluded at company level between employers and employees on working and employment conditions.
The Fair Work Commission can provide information on the process of establishing company agreements and evaluate and approve agreements. We can also look at disputes that arise over the terms of the agreements. Company agreements are based on the minimum conditions of the Modern Awards and/or vary. Modern awards are a safety net of minimum conditions for an entire industry or job, for example the General Retail Industry Award 2010 applies to retail. If a job has a company agreement, the modern price does not apply. Company agreements and bonuses apply in conjunction with National Employment Standards (“NES”). The NES applies to all employees (with the exception of staff of the Land Government and municipal councils) and they cannot be superseded by an arbitration award or agreement.

An agreement must improve the overall situation of an employee in relation to the corresponding price or prices.
The Fair Work Commission can also help employers and workers negotiate with their New Approaches programme. Read more about The New Approaches on the Fair Work Commission website. Fair Work Commission publishes company agreements on this website. Many employees in retail, fast food, warehouses and distributions are covered by company agreements negotiated by the SDA. . . .
