The Fair Work Commission can provide information on the process of drawing up company agreements, evaluate and approve agreements. We can also resolve disputes regarding the terms of the agreements. Leyla Sandeman, AMMA`s East Coast Labour Relations Manager (pictured), examines how an employer`s offer to implement two new company agreements recently failed at the Fair Work Commission (FWC) due to various shortcomings in the HR team`s approach. The bill is expected to be hotly debated in the Senate this year, particularly with respect to the proposed changes to corporate negotiations. In early 2021, we are highlighting three key issues on the horizon of workplace relations. Below is a list of active prices and agreements in the public sector.

To succeed in any claim for termination of a contract of enterprise after the date of nominal expiry, an employer must inform the FWC of the termination of the company agreement: this included a comparison of each clause of the old and new company contract, as well as the provision of business cards with a QR reader code for enterprise contracts. Workers were told that company agreements were a “basis” and that tariffs depended on the sectors in which they worked and market conditions.

FWC`s results showed that the construction company Georgiou Group had not properly explained what it described as “basic agreements” or had not given employees access to the corresponding rewards.
In April and May last year, Georgiou Group`s National Director of Human Resources and Senior Human Resources Advisor held a series of roadshows to explain the terms of the two new company agreements. The term should have been removed before company agreements were allowed, she said. As the two company agreements had a similar content, negotiated in parallel and communicated to the employees, the applications for authorisation were negotiated jointly. At trial, the Sedgman agreement was terminated in recognition that it had been inherited from Peabody Energy when it operated the Coppabella and Moorvale coal mines and that the termination would facilitate the negotiation of a new enterprise contract that would bring productivity benefits. These decisions show that under the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth), there are alternatives to traditional negotiation of an alternative company agreement, which is increasingly available to employers as long as a burning platform and the ability to demonstrate traditional bargaining efforts are demonstrated. In December 2020, the federal government announced the Fair Work Amendment (Supporting Australia`s Jobs and Economic Recovery) Bill 2020. The bill proposes arguably the largest amendment to the Fair Work Act (Cth) 2009 (FW Act) since its passage. If the bill is passed, the Casual Workers, Business Negotiations, Compliance and FW Act will be amended. The High Court`s appeal of Workpac v Rossato  FCAFC is ongoing, and the hearing is expected to be scheduled later in 2021.
We anticipate that employers will face a number of challenges arising from the impact of COVID-19 on the business, including with respect to: Authors: Louise Rumble, Jennifer van Bronswijk and Adrian Zagami Employers are eagerly awaiting the Supreme Court`s decision on the issue. Rossato and Skene`s decisions contradict the general understanding that the casual 25% burden offsets the claims of permanent employees, which has raised concerns about the financial viability of casual work, including the “double dip” of monetary claims, which represents real business risk. The amendments relate in particular (without limitation): the High Court`s appeal remains important on the issue of genuine casual work in order to assess the risk of historical and current occasional arrangements. 2. The question of genuine `casual work` falls within the territory of the High Court ….
