In bad news for employers who have chosen to limit a collective agreement under the Labour Relations Act to workers based on the start date of their work, the High Court last Friday (10 February) rejected Rio Tinto`s request for special leave to appeal a July 2011 Federal Court of Justice decision. The company submitted that part of a single business could be a group of employees who are distinguished by the date they started working. The court rejected this proposal. It found that all persons employed at the time, whose employment would otherwise be subject to the agreement, should have the opportunity to approve or reject the agreement. The company offered 10 new employees employment contracts who were informed at the beginning of the work that steps would be taken to conclude a collective agreement that would apply to them and future employees in similar positions.
