Casual Employment – An Explainer
Tom Earls from Fair Work Lawyers provides detailed analysis of employer obligations relating to casual engagements, and the key steps to take during the transitional window, which has the critical end date of 27 September 2021.
We recently provided an update about new legislation designed to clear up uncertainty surrounding casual engagements and the risk of double-dipping of leave and other entitlements that arose from the Workpac litigation (which itself is presently under High Court challenge).
This update provides more detailed analysis focusing on key obligations for employers, and particularly during the transitional window, which has the critical end date of 27 September 2021. Employers with casual employees should carefully consider the impact of this legislation and what steps need to be taken prior to that time.
