Under the Fair Work Act 2009, the following new enterprise agreements can be entered into: some employees are not covered by a bonus or an enterprise agreement. These workers are subject to a national minimum wage scheme for a minimum wage safety net. In addition, a worker`s bargaining representative who is covered by the agreement cannot conduct standard negotiations on the agreement. Typical negotiations are those where a negotiator represents two or more proposed enterprise agreements and wants to enter into joint agreements with two or more employers.

However, it is not a standard negotiation if the negotiator is really trying to reach an agreement. A bargaining representative is a person or organization that any party to the enterprise agreement can appoint to represent him during the negotiation process. Employers, workers and their representatives are involved in the process of negotiating a proposed enterprise agreement. The employer must notify its employees of the right to be represented by a negotiator when negotiating an enterprise agreement (with the exception of an agreement on green grasslands) and no later than 14 days after the deadline for notification of the agreement (usually the start of negotiations). Disclosure should be notified to any current worker who is covered by the enterprise agreement. A Greenfields agreement is an enterprise agreement for a new employer or employer business before the workers are employed. This can be either an individual enterprise agreement or an agreement with several companies. The parties to a Greenfields agreement are the employer (or employer in a Greenfields agreement with several companies) and one or more workers` organizations involved (usually a union).
