Enterprise bargaining agreements

Want to seize control of your employment arrangements? Unfamiliar with concepts such as good faith bargaining, compulsory arbitration and the “Better Off Overall” test? With new significant civil penalties contained in the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth) and greater scrutiny by the Fair Work Commission, it pays not to risk ‘going it alone’ within enterprise bargaining.

That’s where we come in. Our Wizards have years of experience in enterprise bargaining agreements, and they know how to ensure the EBA process is smooth from beginning to end. Plus, with fixed fees, and no need for a lawyer, you won’t be hit with expensive legal bills.


What is an eba?

Enterprise bargaining is the negotiation process between management, employees and their bargaining representatives (say, a trade union official) with the goal of striking terms for an enterprise agreement (EBA). An EBA is a document registered with the federal employment tribunal setting out the terms and conditions of employment between a group of employees and their employer.


With significant civil penalties in the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth), you need experience on your side of the table when it comes to enterprise bargaining.

Doing the work up front with us will prepare your management team for an efficient, productive and focused EBA negotiation. Our structured and organised planning will save countless hours and tens of thousands of dollars during the negotiation itself.
