Changes to workplace laws relating to casual employees, took effect on 27 March 2021 and dictate you are a casual employee if:

–       you are offered a job

–       the employer makes no firm advance commitment that the work will continue indefinitely with an agreed pattern of work

–       you accept the offer knowing there is no firm advance commitment and become an employee.

Whether or not you are a casual employee is assessed at the time you are offered and accept the job.  However, this may change if you work a regular pattern of hours which continues for 12 months – you may be entitled to casual conversion.
