The Fair Work Act 2009 (FWA) introduced an explicit requirement that rates of pay in an Enterprise Agreement must not fall below the base rates of pay in the applicable modern award.
This means that employers need to monitor how their agreement pay rates compare with the Award rates that would otherwise apply, if there was no agreement. Jobs Australia makes this easy for members and subscribers by publishing a number of pay tables for Multi-Enterprise Agremeents commonly used by our members. We also publish a range of award pay tables so that members can monitor award pay rates in comparison to their own enterprise agreements.
Multi-Enterprise Agreements used by the Community Sector.
