Schedule 5 

46  Interpretation

In this Part:

interim period means the period of 18 months beginning on the day on which section 89A of the Principal Act commences.

Principal Act means the Workplace Relations Act.

special consent provisions has the meaning given by item 48.

termination time, in relation to special consent provisions, means the end of the period that is specified in the award under section 147 of the Principal Act.

47  Exercise of Commission’s powers under this Part

In exercising its powers under this Part, the Commission is to have regard to the desirability of assisting parties to awards to agree on appropriate variations to their awards, rather than have parts of awards cease to have effect under item 50 at the end of the interim period.

48  Special consent provisions

For the purposes of this Part, special consent provisions are provisions of an award that give effect to a decision of the Commission that is expressed to be made in accordance with one or more of the following principles:

 (a) the Enterprise Bargaining Principle adopted by the Commission in the National Wage Case decision of October 1991 (Dec 1150/91, Print K0300);

 (b) the Enterprise Awards Principle adopted by the Commission in its Review of the Wage Fixing Principles decision of October 1993 (Dec 1300/93, Print K9700);

 (c) Principle 2.2 (Consent Award or Award Variation to Give Effect to an Enterprise Agreement), adopted by the Commission in its Review of the Wage Fixing Principles decision of August 1994 (Dec 1408/94, Print L4700) and incorporated without amendment in wages principles established by the Commission in its Safety Net Adjustment & Section 150A Review decision of October 1995 (Dec 2120/95, Print M5600).

49  Variation of awards during the interim period

(1) If one or more of the parties to an award apply to the Commission for a variation of the award under this item, the Commission may, during the interim period, vary the award so that it only deals with allowable award matters.

(2) For the purposes of this item, an exceptional matters order is taken to relate wholly to allowable award matters.

(3) Special consent provisions cannot be varied under this item before the termination time for those provisions.

(4) The Commission may only deal with the application by arbitration if it is satisfied that the applicant or applicants have made reasonable attempts to reach agreement with the other parties to the award about how the award should be varied and the treatment of matters that are not allowable award matters.

(5) If:

 (a) the award provides for rates of pay that, in the opinion of the Commission:

 (i) are not operating as minimum rates; or

 (ii) were made on the basis that they were not intended to operate as minimum rates; and

 (b) the application under this item seeks to have such rates of pay varied so that they are expressed as minimum rates of pay;

the Commission may vary the award so that it provides for minimum rates of pay consistent with sections 88A and 88B of the Principal Act and the limitation on the Commission’s power in subsection 89A(3) of that Act.

(6) If the Commission varies the award under subitem (5), it must include in the award provisions that ensure that overall entitlements to pay provided by the award are not reduced by that variation, unless the Commission considers that it would be in the public interest not to include such provisions.

(7) The Commission must, if it considers it appropriate, review the award to determine whether or not it meets the following criteria:

 (a) it does not include matters of detail or process that are more appropriately dealt with by agreement at the workplace or enterprise level;

 (b) it does not prescribe work practices or procedures that restrict or hinder the efficient performance of work;

 (c) it does not contain provisions that have the effect of restricting or hindering productivity, having regard to fairness to employees.

(8) The Commission must also review the award to determine whether or not it meets the following criteria:

 (a) where appropriate, it contains facilitative provisions that allow agreement at the workplace or enterprise level, between employers and employees (including individual employees), on how the award provisions are to apply;

 (b) where appropriate, it contains provisions enabling the employment of regular parttime employees;

 (c) it is expressed in plain English and is easy to understand in both structure and content;

 (d) it does not contain provisions that are obsolete or that need updating;

 (e) where appropriate, it provides support to training arrangements through appropriate trainee wages and a supported wage system for people with disabilities;

 (f) it does not contain provisions that discriminate against an employee because of, or for reasons including, race, colour, sex, sexual preference, age, physical or mental disability, marital status, family responsibilities, pregnancy, religion, political opinion, national extraction or social origin.

(9) If the Commission determines that the award does not meet the criteria set out in subitem (7) or (8), the Commission may take whatever steps it considers appropriate to facilitate the variation of the award so that it does meet those criteria.

50  Parts of awards cease to have effect at the end of the interim period

(1) At the end of the interim period, each award ceases to have effect to the extent that it provides for matters other than allowable award matters.

(2) For the purposes of this item, an exceptional matters order is taken to relate wholly to allowable award matters.

(3) For the purposes of this item, an award that is made under subsection 170MX(3) of the Principal Act, or varied under item 49 of this Schedule, is taken to provide wholly for allowable award matters.

(4) If the termination time for special consent provisions is after the end of the interim period, then this item and item 51 apply to the special consent provisions as if a reference to the end of the interim period were instead a reference to the termination time.

51  Variation of awards after the end of the interim period

(1) As soon as practicable after the end of the interim period, the Commission must review each award:

 (a) that is in force; and

 (b) that the Commission is satisfied has been affected by item 50.

(2) The Commission must vary the award to remove provisions that ceased to have effect under item 50.

(3) When varying the award under subitem (2), the Commission may also vary the award so that, in relation to an allowable award matter, the award is expressed in a way that reasonably represents the entitlements of employees in respect of that matter as provided in the award as in force immediately before the end of the interim period.

(4) If, immediately before the end of the interim period, the award provided for rates of pay that, in the opinion of the Commission:

 (a) were not operating as minimum rates of pay; or

 (b) were made on the basis that they were not intended to operate as minimum rates;

the Commission may vary the award so that it provides for minimum rates of pay consistent with sections 88A and 88B of the Principal Act and the limitation on the Commission’s power in subsection 89A(3) of that Act.

(5) If the Commission varies the award under subitem (4), it must include in the award provisions that ensure that overall entitlements to pay provided by the award are not reduced by that variation, unless the Commission considers that it would be in the public interest not to include such provisions.

(6) The Commission must, if it considers it appropriate, review the award to determine whether or not it meets the following criteria:

 (a) it does not include matters of detail or process that are more appropriately dealt with by agreement at the workplace or enterprise level;

 (b) it does not prescribe work practices or procedures that restrict or hinder the efficient performance of work;

 (c) it does not contain provisions that have the effect of restricting or hindering productivity, having regard to fairness to employees.

(7) The Commission must also review the award to determine whether or not it meets the following criteria:

 (a) where appropriate, it contains facilitative provisions that allow agreement at the workplace or enterprise level, between employers and employees (including individual employees), on how the award provisions are to apply;

 (b) where appropriate, it contains provisions enabling the employment of regular parttime employees;

 (c) it is expressed in plain English and is easy to understand in both structure and content;

 (d) it does not contain provisions that are obsolete or that need updating;

 (e) where appropriate, it provides support to training arrangements through appropriate trainee wages and a supported wage system for people with disabilities;

 (ea) if it applies to work that is or may be performed by young people—protects the competitive position of young people in the labour market, promotes youth employment, youth skills and community standards and assists in reducing youth unemployment by including, if, on a casebycase basis, the Commission determines it appropriate, junior rates of pay; and

 (f) it does not contain provisions that discriminate against an employee because of, or for reasons including, race, colour, sex, sexual preference, age, physical or mental disability, marital status, family responsibilities, pregnancy, religion, political opinion, national extraction or social origin.

(8) If the Commission determines that the award does not meet the criteria set out in subitem (6) or (7), the Commission may take whatever steps it considers appropriate to facilitate the variation of the award so that it does meet those criteria.

52  Corporations not bound by State awards

(1) If:

 (a) a constitutional corporation is bound by an award in respect of an employee; and

 (b) the award is varied under subitem 49(1) or wholly or partly ceases to have effect because of item 50; and

 (c) as a result of the award being varied, or ceasing to have effect, as mentioned in paragraph (b), the corporation would (apart from this item) become bound by a State award in respect of the employee;

then the corporation is not bound by the State award in relation to the employee unless it becomes bound as a result of an application by the corporation to the relevant State industrial authority.

(2) Subitem (1) does not operate so that a State award, or part of a State award, prevails over an award of the Commission.

53  Matters to be dealt with by Full Bench

(1) After the commencement of this Part, a Full Bench may establish principles about varying awards under this Part.

(2) After such principles (if any) have been established, the power of the Commission to vary an award under this Part is exercisable only by a Full Bench unless the contents of the award:

 (a) give effect to determinations of a Full Bench under this Part; or

 (b) are consistent with principles established by a Full Bench under this item.

54  Certain provisions not discriminatory

(1) A provision of an award does not discriminate against an employee for the purposes of paragraph 49(8)(f) or 51(7)(f) merely because:

 (a) it provides for a junior rate of pay; or

 (b) it discriminates, in respect of particular employment, on the basis of the inherent requirements of that employment; or

 (c) it discriminates, in respect of employment as a member of the staff of an institution that is conducted in accordance with the teachings or beliefs of a particular religion or creed:

 (i) on the basis of those teachings or beliefs; and

 (ii) in good faith.

(2) Paragraph (1)(a) does not apply to a decision or determination made by the Commission under this Part more than 3 years after 22 June 1997, except where the Commission decides, on a casebycase basis, that the paragraph should apply. Decisions by the Commission as to whether the paragraph should apply must be made by the Commission in accordance with principles established by a Full Bench.
