Create Legally Binding Enterprise Agreements


An Enterprise Agreement is a legally binding contract created between an employer and employees regarding the terms and conditions of employment. This agreement typically covers wages, hours, break times, and other working conditions. An Enterprise agreement is tailored to meet the specific needs of a particular enterprise.

Our team can help your business draft single-enterprise, multi-enterprise, and Greenfields agreements. This includes preparing essential statutory documents, negotiating with trade unions, and arbitration with the Fair Work Commission.

Creating an Enterprise Agreement

An Enterprise Agreement can involve a single employer, multiple employers, or a new business (a Greenfields agreement). Enterprise Agreements are designed to foster fair work practices and ensure both parties’ rights and responsibilities are clearly outlined.

The approval process for enterprise agreements varies based on the kind of agreement. There are three types you might encounter:

Single-Enterprise Agreements

These involve one employer or multiple employers collaborating in what is essentially a single business (these employers are known as single-interest employers).

Multi-Enterprise Agreements

These involve two or more employers who are not all single-interest employers.

Greenfields Agreements

These involve a genuinely new business that one or more employers are setting up or plan to set up and who have not yet hired the people needed for the normal operation of the business. These agreements could be either a single-enterprise agreement or a multi-enterprise agreement.
