When the FWC must approve a termination of an enterprise agreement

                   If an application for the approval of a termination of an enterprise agreement is made under section 222, the FWC must approve the termination if:

                     (a)  the FWC is satisfied that each employer covered by the agreement complied with subsection 220(2) (which deals with giving employees a reasonable opportunity to decide etc.) in relation to the agreement; and

                     (b)  the FWC is satisfied that the termination was agreed to in accordance with whichever of subsection 221(1) or (2) applies (those subsections deal with agreement to the termination of different kinds of enterprise agreements by employee vote); and

                     (c)  the FWC is satisfied that there are no other reasonable grounds for believing that the employees have not agreed to the termination; and

                     (d)  the FWC considers that it is appropriate to approve the termination taking into account the views of the employee organisation or employee organisations (if any) covered by the agreement.
