FAIR WORK ACT 2009 - SECT 768AA
Guide to this Part
This Part provides for the transfer of certain terms and conditions of
employment when there is a transfer of business from a non-national system
employer that is a State public sector
employer (called "the old State employer") to a national system employer
(called "the new employer").
A transfer of business involves the transfer of employment of one or more
employees of the old State employer to the new employer. Each of those
employees is a "transferring employee".
If there is a transfer of business, then this Part provides for certain terms
and conditions of employment with the old State employer to be transferred to
the employment of the transferring employee with the new employer.
This Part achieves the transfer of those terms and conditions by creating a
new instrument--a "copied State instrument"--for each transferring employee.
The new instrument is a federal instrument and is enforceable under this Act.
