Enterprise agreements  

When you start your job, instead of a modern award, you may work under an agreement.

There are three types of agreements available:

  • Single Enterprise Agreements
  • Multi-Enterprise Agreements
  • Greenfield Agreements

Enterprise agreements are usually negotiated voluntarily between employers and their employees or the union on behalf of employees.

Like awards, they also set out the minimum conditions of employment for employees engaged under the agreement.
Enterprise agreements may cover all or some of the employment conditions under the appropriate award.

Enterprise agreements must comply with all laws and, in general, employees under an enterprise agreement should not be worse off than other workers under a similar award.
