Employment contracts are a vital part of an organisation’s employment framework.
As HR manager, you need to make sure your organisation’s employment contracts:
- comply with the law
- are easy to administer
- protect your organisation as much as possible
- are consistent with the other employment framework instruments (policies, awards and enterprise agreements).

Employment Contract for an employee covered by a Modern Award or Enterprise Agreement – $1,265 inc GST
Modern awards are industry or occupation based minimum employment standards which apply in addition to the National Employment Standards (NES). Most industries have a modern award, which covers all employers and employees in that sector.
Enterprise agreements set out conditions of employment for a group of employees at one or more workplaces. Enterprise agreements will apply instead of a modern award. The pay rate in an enterprise agreement can’t be less than the pay rate in the relevant modern award.
Employment Contract for an employee not covered by a Modern Award – $1,265 inc GST
Most employees are covered by an award or registered agreement, but a few jobs and industries are not.
When an employee is not covered by an award or agreement they are considered to be award and agreement free.
Employers of award and agreement free employees should still have an employment contract in place.
