Before approving a company agreement, the Fair Work Commission must be satisfied that approval of the agreement would not in good faith jeopardise the negotiations of one or more negotiators for a proposed company agreement. A Greenfields agreement is a company agreement entered into in respect of a new business of the employer or employer before employing workers. This can be either a single company agreement or a multi-company agreement. The parties to a Greenfields agreement are the employer (or employer in an agreement involving several companies in the green grasslands) and one or more relevant workers` organizations (usually a trade union). The bona foi requirements that a bargaining representative must meet are listed below: the transitional instruments based on the agreement include various individual and collective agreements that may have been concluded before 1 July 2009 under the former Workplace Relations Act 1996. These include individual temporary employment agreements (ITEAs) concluded during the transition period (1 July 2009-31 December 2009).
