Quick guides – Understanding Fair Pay Agreements

Information for employees and employers about their rights and obligations under the Fair Pay Agreement law is available as an information sheet in different languages.

The Fair Pay Agreements system brings together unions and employer associations to bargain for employment terms for all covered employees in an industry or occupation. This means that these organisations will meet to discuss and agree on a set of employment terms for the work being done within an industry or occupation.
