EMPLOYMENT LAW - FOR EMPLOYERS
CONTRACTING OUT
Under the Workplace Relations Act an employer could not contract out of an award. However, under the Fair Work Act, where an employee is considered "high paid", the employer can exclude the employee from award coverage by giving an undertaking guaranteeing that the employee's total remuneration will exceed the limit set by the law, which is presently $108,300 a year. The amount is indexed each August.
