So what’s changed?

The main change to the commission-only employment agreements is the insertion of a default provision for the debiting of vendor paid advertising that’s not recovered from the vendor. This is something that more and more employers have wanted to include in their employment agreements. If the provision does not suit your purposes, you can remove it; it is now an opt-out provision, rather than an opt-in provision.

To help simply the complex nature of calculating commission entitlements for an employee on a commission-only arrangement, we’ve amended the template Employment Agreements by combining the two columns headed ‘Base Commission’ and ‘Base Commission Superannuation’ into a single column headed ‘Guaranteed Base Commission (inclusive of superannuation)’. This provides for the combined minimum percentage of 34.4925%. 

We’ve also created a new position description for the role of Licensee-In-Charge.

And the EEO policy has been amended to accommodate issues regarding inter-office relationships. The revised policy sets the ground rules for how such relationships will be managed.
