An agreement that is not a greenfields agreement passes the better off overall test (BOOT) when the Fair Work Commission is satisfied that each present and prospective award covered employee would be better off overall if the agreement applied rather than the relevant modern award.
The Commission needs to be satisfied that, weighing the agreement provisions as a whole with those in the award, an employee is better off overall.
A greenfields agreement passes the better off overall test if the Commission is satisfied, as at the test time, that each prospective award covered employee would be better off overall if the agreement applied than if the relevant modern award applied.
