WRITTEN EMPLOYMENT AGREEMENTS A  MUST FOR MOST!

The Real Estate Industry Award 2010 (the Award) requires that an employer paying Commission, Bonus or Incentive Payments to an employee must have a written agreement with that employee. This would apply to most salespeople and many property managers.

SECTION 15 requires that all employees receiving commission to have a written agreement with their employer stating how it is to be calculated.

SECTION 16 requires that any employee receiving commission only payments that exceed the minimum 35% of net office commission must have the calculation detailed in a written agreement with their employer.

If you require a source of agreements, each state generally has its own supplier/s.

Alternatively, www.repsa.com.au is an online, very affordable, customised Real Estate Employment Agreement building site - secure, flexible, compliant with legislation and the Award and relevant to each and every State and Territory in Australia. Build a sample agreement at NO COST.
