Enterprise Agreement Pros And Cons

An employment contract raises clear expectations as to what is required of each party. The provisions of the agreement on “promotion” and “cessation” highlight what constitutes a satisfactory and unsatisfactory performance. The agreement also indicates what the employer should do, for example. B a bonus when a worker exceeds expectations. One of the potential drawbacks of an employment contract is that, as part of the agreement, each party has an unspoken duty to act in good faith and to act fairly with the other party. This means that the parties must act honestly against each other. Each party must make appropriate efforts within the framework of the treaty. to fulfil the objective of the contract. A party that violates the tacit duty may be sued by the other party.

For example, in some sectors, premiums are awarded with countless quotas and penalty interest. An agreement could eliminate allowances and provide for an “all-inclusive” rate of pay that would save administrative time and reduce the risk of error. The old EAs can be terminated on request from the FWC, with the agreement of the employer and employees, or at the employer`s sole request. In the past, it was difficult to get the agreement of the FWC to lay off a former EA without the consent of the workers. Under the Fair Work Act, the FWK must consider the public interest in review if a contract is to be terminated. The FWC has a wide discretion to examine both the objectives of the legislation and, importantly, the impact that redundancy will have on employers and workers and their ability to negotiate effectively. However, it is not enough to simply offer, answer questions and explain the agreement to workers on demand, especially if the proposed agreement removes the important rights that workers would otherwise have enjoyed.
