An application for the Fair Work Commission to approve an enterprise agreement must be made to the Commission within 14 days after the agreement is made.
The agreement is made when a majority of those employees who cast a valid vote approve the agreement.
The application must include the Form F16 application, a signed copy of the agreement and the Form F17 employer declaration (and its attachments). It may also be accompanied by other documents.
To avoid delays in the Commission's processing of the application, it is important that these documents are properly completed and lodged on time.
