FAIR WORK ACT 2009 - SECT 313

Transferring employees and new employer covered by transferable instrument

             (1)  If a transferable instrument covered the old employer and a transferring employee immediately before the termination of the transferring employee's employment with the old employer, then:

                     (a)  the transferable instrument covers the new employer and the transferring employee in relation to the transferring work after the time (the transfer time ) the transferring employee becomes employed by the new employer; and

                     (b)  while the transferable instrument covers the new employer and the transferring employee in relation to the transferring work, no other enterprise agreement or named employer award that covers the new employer at the transfer time covers the transferring employee in relation to that work.

             (2)  To avoid doubt, a transferable instrument that covers the new employer and a transferring employee under paragraph (1)(a) includes any individual flexibility arrangement that had effect as a term of the transferable instrument immediately before the termination of the transferring employee's employment with the old employer.

             (3)  This section has effect subject to any FWC order under subsection 318(1).
