The Minister argued that the Commission`s distinction between the variation of a concept and the variation of the effect of a concept was not a valid distinction. The FW Act ensures that these agreements do not infringe on the minimum rights of workers by obliging the employer to ensure that the worker covered by the IFA is overall better off at the IFA compared to the award agreement or the modern company agreement which varies according to the IFA.

The financial remuneration received by the employee before and after the conclusion of the contract is cross-checked. .
