In Austria, it is not possible to revoke collective agreements to pay wages below the conventional level. The collective agreement defines the framework within which employment contracts can be concluded through company-specific regulations. The so-called «distribution» option allows the social partners to agree on a redistribution of a certain amount of the total wage bill at the enterprise level. This can be flexibly distributed by the employer among certain categories of workers, according to specific criteria, such as compensation for very low incomes.

In Austria, there are a large number of laws dealing with different aspects of labour law. However, the Law on the Constitution of Labour (ArbVG) is the central legislator of Austrian labour law.

For historical reasons (bitter class struggles in the First Republic, experiences of austrofascism and the Nazi regime), the characteristic characteristic of the Second Republic is a strong commitment to the principle of harmonious cooperation. In the industrial relations system, this principle has resulted in the creation of collective organizations of interests representing employers and workers, far beyond partisan and non-rivalry political lines. The basic structure of this commitment to harmonious cooperation in Austria is the system of social partnership. As far as societal values are concerned, this means the willingness of the government and collective organizations to make all social and economic issues the subject of negotiations in order to reach consensus solutions. Institutionally, social partnership is a complex system, based on institutional participation at the micro level, the collective bargaining system at Meso level, and tripartite and bilateral forms of macroeconomic consultation. While the government inserts an exclusive circle of social partner organizations into all economic and social decisions, the regulation of employment conditions under the ArbVG remains the autonomous province of labour market parties. The central area of labour relations remains free from substantial state intervention.
