As for a bonus, you cannot enter into a contract from an enterprise agreement, so each contract must be at least as favorable as the agreement. It is not possible to enter into contracts from modern award or enterprise agreements, unless the awarding or modern enterprise agreement expressly allows it. If the parties fail to agree on the terms of a proposed enterprise agreement, a representative of the negotiations may ask the Commission for assistance in fair work. The ADJ Contracting case means that enterprise agreements may contain clauses: in an enterprise agreement, it is possible to reorganize different categories of leave, working time or remuneration, as long as the agreement is the Better Off Overall Test (BOOT): on the whole, workers must be better off than they would be under the premium. For example, if a flat rate plus the base rate is paid instead of the base rate plus overtime, the overall income must be higher than what would be paid for the corresponding model of overtime work under the premium. Once the negotiations are over and a draft enterprise agreement is completed, it must be voted on by the workers covered by the agreement. An enterprise agreement must include the following conditions: A Greenfields agreement is an enterprise agreement reached in relation to a new employer or employer business before the workers are employed.

An enterprise agreement can be reached for all workers of the employer or for a single group of workers (provided that the group of employees is fairly chosen). Individual employees are generally not mentioned in the coverage clause. In the Australian Industry Group against ADJ Contracting Pty Ltd [2011] FWAFB 6684, a full bench of Fair Work Australia found that the following three clauses, often supported by unions, are not “illegal conditions” and can be included in enterprise agreements: the Fair Work Commission can also assist employers and workers who negotiate with their new approach program.
