If you are not covered by an agreement, your minimum wages and conditions will probably be set by a modern premium. In a recent decision on enterprise agreements, the Fair Work Commission (FWC) confirmed that it did not have the power to correct a « clear error » in the agreements already approved. Registered contracts apply until they are terminated or replaced. To succeed with an application to terminate an enterprise contract after the expiry of the nominal expiry date, an employer must notify the FWK of the termination of the enterprise contract: in such cases, parties wishing to assert rights under the non-operational agreement should sue in court if they are able to do so. Enterprise agreements are collective agreements between employers and workers on employment conditions.

These terms are the source of the FWC`s dispute resolution power, which it exercises through private arbitration between the parties. The Vice-President said that there was « a distinction between the instruments put in place by the Commission and those that have become effective by the Commission ». The terms of an enterprise agreement are not set by the Commission, but by the parties when a valid majority of workers vote in favour of approval. Therefore, the FWC does not have the authority to correct a clear error in an enterprise agreement pursuant to FW Act s602.
