individual flexibility agreement (IFA)

An Individual Flexibility Agreement (IFA) is a written agreement that alters certain clauses of an award or registered agreement to suit the specific needs of both the employer and the employee.

IFAs are used to make specific changes to an award or registered agreement. These agreements can adjust working hours, salary, and other work conditions to better fit the unique situations of both the employer and the employee. They must be mutually agreed upon and cannot reduce the overall entitlements of the employee.
