Enterprise Agreements

An Enterprise Agreement is a legally binding agreement that is negotiated between an employer and its employees. An Enterprise Agreement can replace an award or awards entirely thereby representing an agreement that has been made to suit a particular enterprise and the unique characteristics of that enterprise.

For example, the modern Hospitality Industry (General) Award 2010 does not allow for certain flexibilities that would benefit the operation of a workplace. An Enterprise Agreement can create flexibilities that awards do not allow, such as workplace specific pay and classification structures.

The following types of Enterprise Agreements can be made:

  • Single-enterprise Agreements (one employer or several single-interest employers)
  • Multi-enterprise Agreements (multiple employers who are not single-interest employers)
  • Greenfields Agreements (Agreement made prior to business commencing)
