Enterprise Agreements services

Enterprise agreements are agreements between an employer and its employees regarding terms and conditions of employment. iHR Australia can help organisations through all phases of an enterprise agreement with expert advice, assistance or as a bargaining representative.

Agreeing to the terms of employment

Enterprise Agreements, formerly known as Enterprise Bargaining Agreements (EBAs), are a collective industrial instrument generally made at an enterprise level between the employer and its employees regarding terms and conditions of employment. Employers and employees and/or their bargaining representatives enter into a bargaining process to negotiate an enterprise agreement. To be approved, enterprise agreements need to satisfy a number of requirements provided for by the relevant legislation, including the Better Off Overall Test (BOOT).
