FAIR WORK ACT 2009 - SECT 768AU

Enterprise agreements and copied State instruments

  (1)   While a copied State instrument for a transferring employee covers the employee and the new employer in relation to the transferring work, an enterprise agreement that covers the new employer at the employee's re - employment time does not cover the employee in relation to that work.

Note 1:   The fact that a copied State collective employment agreement for a transferring employee covers the employee does not prevent the employee and the new employer from replacing that agreement at any time with an enterprise agreement, regardless of whether the employee's copied State collective employment agreement has passed its nominal expiry date.

Note 2:   Industrial action must not be taken before the nominal expiry date of a copied State collective employment agreement for a transferring employee (see item   4 of Schedule   13 to the Transitional Act as that item applies in a modified way because of section   768BY).

  (2)   However, if after the re - employment time, another enterprise agreement starts to cover the employee and the new employer in relation to the transferring work, then the copied State instrument for the employee ceases to cover the employee and the new employer and can never cover them again.

  (3)   This section has effect subject to any FWC order about coverage under subsection   768BA(1).
