Main terms and conditions
(1) The main terms and conditions of employment of an employee that are provided under this Act are those set out in:
(a) the National Employment Standards (see Part 2-2); and
(b) a modern award (see Part 2-3), an enterprise agreement (see Part 2-4) or a workplace determination (see Part 2-5) that applies to the employee.
Note 1: The situations in which a workplace determination, rather than a modern award or enterprise agreement, provides an employee's terms and conditions of employment are limited. In most cases, this Act applies to a workplace determination as if it were an enterprise agreement in operation (see section 279). See Part 2-5 generally for the rules on workplace determinations.
Note 2: Part 2-8 provides for the transfer of certain modern awards, enterprise agreements and workplace determinations if there is a transfer of business from an employee's employer to another employer.
Note 3: Copied State instruments provide the main terms and conditions of employment for an employee to whom the instrument applies. See Part 6-3A generally for the rules about those instruments.
Other terms and conditions
(2) In addition, other terms and conditions of employment include:
(a) those terms and conditions arising from:
(i) a national minimum wage order (see Part 2-6); or
(ii) an equal remuneration order (see Part 2-7); and
(b) those terms and conditions provided by Part 2-9.
Note: Part 2-9 deals with miscellaneous terms and conditions of employment, such as payment of wages.
