Section 167ZZ3: Restrictions on contracting out

Subsection (1) provides that an agreement is void to the extent that it purports to exclude, limit or otherwise modify any provision of the Part of the Act dealing with statutory shared parental pay, or to require a person to contribute (whether directly or indirectly) towards any relevant costs incurred by that person’s employer or former employer.

Subsection (2) contains a provision which ensures that certain agreements with an employee authorising deductions from shared parental pay are not void.
