Do you have a pre-2010 employment agreement?

22 May 2023 | By Australian Taxation Office

The Fair Work Commission is informing employers about changes to some registered employment agreements.

Some employers and their employees are still covered by pre-2010 agreements (also known as ‘zombie agreements’). These agreements will terminate automatically in December 2023.

If you’re an employer with this type of agreement, you must tell your employees in writing about the coming changes. You must do this before 7 June 2023.

The Fair Work Commission has published resources to help you meet this obligation (see links below).

  • Guide for employers – Information about pre-2010 agreements (‘zombie agreements’) and the written notice requirement.
  • Template written notice – Employers can use this template to meet their obligation.

There is more information about the changes to pre-2010 agreements as well as other Secure Jobs Better Pay changes on the Fair Work Commission’s website.
