Depending on the state or territory in which you are employed and your employment (for example. B as a casual worker, full-time worker or contractor), you are subject to either the national employment relations laws or the employment relations laws of your state or territory. All labour relations systems in Australia provide for the conclusion of company agreements. They are also often referred to as industrial contracts. Workers who are not covered by the national labour relations regime may be covered by a company agreement concluded under the laws of their state or territory. States and territories generally have fewer company agreements. For example, in NSW, a company agreement may be approved by the Industrial Relations Board after agreement between the employers and workers to whom it will apply. The rules that can be included in a company agreement are much less prescriptive than in the national system. The employment relations bodies of each State and territory generally keep a register of company agreements for that jurisdiction.
A company agreement cannot be concluded with a single employee. There are different types of company agreements. A „Greenfields“ agreement is the term used to describe a company agreement concluded in respect of a new company in the process of being created and which does not yet employ the employees who will work on the company. When a company agreement is concluded by one or more interrelated employers, the company agreement is called a „sole proprietorship agreement“. Company agreements entered into by several employers that are not related are called „multi-company agreements“. Workers can only be covered by a company agreement at a given time in respect of their employment with an employer. Here you will find a list of company agreements concluded under national labour laws. If a provision of the company agreement is violated, the employer may be asked to pay a fine of 60 penalty units.
They may also be financially compensated for the offence.

The Committee on Policy must also indicate an expiry date which must not exceed four years after the approval of the agreement by the Fair Work Commission. Finally, certain conditions cannot be included in a company agreement, for example. B discriminatory conditions. . . .
