 Recorded Webinar: Getting Clarity on Casuals

Date: Friday 23rd July 2021
Duration: Approximately 1 Hour

Recent high-profile decisions, along with the Federal Government’s Omnibus Bill have refocused attention on the definition of casual employment and whether employees are truly ‘casual’ employees. But confusion abounds generally over the application of the test in practice. This topic addresses:

  • The definition of casual employment for the purposes of the Fair Work Act, workplace instruments and the new Omnibus Bill
  • A broad review of casual employee entitlements, including unfair dismissal and casual conversion
  • The latest developments in litigation and class actions following Workpac v Skene
  • Steps to take to mitigate claims by casuals that they are not ‘true’ casuals, including the use of set-off clauses
