The Fair Work Act 2009 provides a simple, flexible and fair framework that helps employers and workers negotiate in good faith to enter into an enterprise agreement.  The contracting parties approve among themselves the proposed enterprise agreements (for workers, they are put to a vote).
The Fair Work Commission then evaluates them for approval. (Under the Fair Labour Act of 2009, agreements that are now renamed “Enterprise Agreements” are now renamed “Enterprise Agreements” and submitted to the Fair Work Commission to assess modern attribution rights and verify violations of the law.)  Information and instruments are available on the Commission`s website to support an agreement.
