coverage clause

A coverage clause is a section within an award or registered agreement that specifies the employees and employers it applies to.

The coverage clause is key in understanding who is affected by the terms of a particular award or agreement. It clearly outlines which sectors, industries, or types of employees are bound by its conditions. For example, a coverage clause might specify that it applies to all retail workers and their employers within a certain region.
