Understanding Your Enterprise Agreement

Employee Relations

No courses currently available but contact us and we can bring the course to you.


The objective of this 1-day course is to provide participants with a comprehensive understanding of the terms and conditions of the new ACSA template Enterprise Agreement (EA) 2017-2020. Understanding Your New Enterprise Agreement is critical to the effective management of the employment relationship in your workplace. If the EA applies in your workplace, you can’t afford to miss this opportunity. The EA will soon be implemented in over 80 member organisations. The terms and conditions of the EA will apply to the majority of employees employed by ACSA members in NSW and the ACT.

The training has been designed to enable you to understand the structure of the EA, its clauses and how they apply to your employees using real life scenarios. The EA where possible has been designed to be a flexible document, many of the clauses being facilitative rather than prescriptive. Understanding the EA will allow you to take advantage of the flexibilities and ensure you comply with your obligations.
