FAIR WORK ACT 2009 - SECT 244

Variation of low-paid authorisations--general

Variation to remove employer

             (1)  An employer specified in a low-paid authorisation may apply to the FWC for a variation of the authorisation to remove the employer's name from the authorisation.

             (2)  If an application is made under subsection (1), the FWC must vary the authorisation to remove the employer's name if the FWC is satisfied that, because of a change in the employer's circumstances, it is no longer appropriate for the employer to be specified in the authorisation.

Variation to add employer

             (3)  The following may apply to the FWC for a variation of a low-paid authorisation to add the name of an employer that is not specified in the authorisation:

                     (a)  the employer;

                     (b)  a bargaining representative of an employee who will be covered by the proposed multi-enterprise agreement to which the authorisation relates;

                     (c)  an employee organisation that is entitled to represent the industrial interests of an employee in relation to work to be performed under that agreement.

             (4)  If an application is made under subsection (3), the FWC must vary the authorisation to add the employer's name if the FWC is satisfied that it is in the public interest to do so, taking into account the matters specified in subsections 243(2) and (3).
