The National Employment Standards provide multiple options for covering Australian workers under an employment contract. These options include an official contract, agreement, or an award.
Awards include the minimum standards of employment and has a set list of rules and conditions for all employees within a unique industry. They cover the basic rate of pay, type of employment, rates for overtime work, annual salary, allowances, redundancy, and stipulations of taking leave or placing a formal resignation.
An agreement (sometime referred to as an Enterprise Agreement) stated the working conditions for a group of employees within a single organization. These agreements are the most common way employers state their set wages and workplace conditions.
