Guide Employment Agreements

30 August 2016

The ACA Employment Agreements provide member practices with guide that they can review and adjust to suit their particular practice.

The Guide Employment Agreements focus on employment under the various national awards and are designed to supplement those documents. They should be read in conjunction with the particular award, the National Employment Standards and state industrial laws.

Each state or territory version is adjusted for the local variations that occur due to the continuing existence of state-based industrial laws. The documents are also available in Word format, allowing the flexibility for each practice to modify them as they see fit.

There are Guide Employment Agreements for employees in each state under the following awards:

  • Architects Award
  • Clerks Award
  • Modern Manufacturing Award – Draughting Staff
  • Modern Miscellaneous Award – Interior Designers

Copies of these Awards are available here

All guide agreements are availabel in PDF format for reference as well as an editable Word document.
