Your questions answered: How can we change an enterprise agreement during the access period?

We have just discovered that the rates of pay in an enterprise agreement that is currently in its access period prior to a vote are incorrect! What is the best way to rectify this?


You will need to alter the enterprise agreement to include the correct rates of pay and begin the 7-day access period again.

Generally, if you change/amend any provision of the enterprise agreement during the 7-day access period, you will need to start a new 7-day access period.

Further help on this subject can be found in the chapters titled E2 Enterprise Agreements and E3 Enterprise Bargaining, both of which are contained in the Employment Law Practical Handbook.

All chapters (more than 80) are written in plain English by the employment law experts at Holding Redlich. It’s just like having your own lawyer on the payroll – but a whole lot cheaper!
