When the FWC may refuse to make a variation of a supported bargaining agreement to add employer and employees

  (1)   If an application for the variation of a supported bargaining agreement is made under section   216B, the FWC may refuse to make the variation if the FWC considers that compliance with the terms of the agreement as proposed to be varied may result in:

  (a)   a person committing an offence against a law of the Commonwealth; or

  (b)   a person being liable to pay a pecuniary penalty in relation to a contravention of a law of the Commonwealth.

  (2)   Subsection   (1) has effect despite section   216BA (which deals with making variations of supported bargaining agreements without consent).

  (3)   If the FWC refuses to make a variation of a supported bargaining agreement under this section, the FWC may refer the agreement as proposed to be varied to any person or body the FWC considers appropriate.
