For more information on the application of this code of conduct, please see the Transaction Agreements Guide (PDF, 512KB, 66 pages). There are a number of requirements to ensure that a transaction agreement complies with the new legislation. These are: if the refusal of a flexible work application were to become a factor in a formal proceeding, the labour tribunal will apply the CASA code of conduct to determine whether the employer acted lawfully. The CASA Code of Conduct refers to information without which a trade union delegate may be disadvantaged in collective bargaining, i.e. when negotiating wages, benefits and other conditions of employment. As such important legislation, CASA has developed a code of conduct to ensure that employers follow best practices and guide them through the comparison process.
