Agreements

Enterprise agreements and other registered agreements set out minimum employment conditions.

Who do agreements apply to?

Enterprise agreements and other registered agreements can apply to:

  • one business
  • a group of businesses, or
  • an individual employee (but these types of agreements can’t be made anymore).

When a workplace has a registered agreement, the award doesn’t apply. However:

Registered agreements apply until they are terminated or replaced.
