National Employment Standards (NES) are minimum standards that cannot be overturned by the terms of agreements or business bonuses. Enterprise agreements and modern bonuses contain minimum rights for wages and conditions of employment. Enterprise agreements are collective agreements between employers and workers on employment conditions. The Fair Labour Commission can provide information on the process of drafting enterprise agreements, evaluate and approve agreements. We can also deal with disputes over the terms of the agreements. Some employees are not covered by a bonus or enterprise agreement. These workers are subject to a national minimum wage scheme for a minimum wage safety net. If you have searched and cannot reach an agreement, the information and tools are available on the Commission`s website to support the agreement. Visit an agreement for more details. If you are not covered by an agreement, your minimum wages and conditions will probably be set by a modern premium. Start with our document search and try to search for full-text chords. Enterprise agreements must not contain illegal content (for example.

B discriminatory or offensive conditions). Business agreements can be tailored to the needs of some companies. An agreement should be overall better for an employee when compared to the corresponding bonuses or rewards. Fair Work Commission publishes enterprise agreements on this website. Modern rewards cover an entire sector or profession and provide a safety net between minimum wage rates and employment conditions. If you receive help to understand the minimum wage and the conditions that apply to you, contact the Ombudsman for fair work.
