Australia: Norton Rose Australia advises on successful enterprise agreement application for national fast food / hospitality franchise
Last Updated: 1 March 2011

Norton Rose Australia's employment law team in Melbourne recently assisted the franchisor of a national fast food restaurant with a successful non-union enterprise agreement application to Fair Work Australia.

We assisted the national fast food / hospitality chain with negotiations, drafting the agreement and the application for approval to Fair Work Australia.

The agreement had to be tailored to accommodate the business' young staff who work a broad span of hours and featured loaded "all-in" rates that were found by Fair Work Australia to satisfy the Better Off Overall Test (BOOT). The agreement was approved by Fair Work Australia "on the papers" without the need for a hearing or for undertakings from the employer.

If you believe that your business could benefit from an enterprise agreement you should contact Norton Rose Australia's Melbourne employment law team.
