Why does my business need a Casual Employment Agreement?
If your business engages employees with no on-going expectation of work or set hours per week, your employees may be classified as casual employees.
Under the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth), if the employer makes no firm advancement to the employee that the work will be continuous and to a regular pattern, and the employee accepts the work on this basis, then the employee will be under a casual award rate. This casual award rate differs for each industry so it is best to get the most up to date information for your specific industry on the Fair Work website.
When engaging casual employees, the key considerations to include in your employment agreement are the National Employment Standards for casual workers. The National Employment Standards list the minimum standards of employment and employee engagement such as being able to take the day off on a public holiday.
On 27 March 2021, amendments were made to employment legislation that changed the definition of casual workers. Due to these changes, a casual employee must now be offered the option by their employer to convert to a full-time or part-time worker if:
- The employee has worked for 12 months as a casual worker at the business.
- The employee has had a regular pattern of work hours with no significant changes within the last 6 months.
Due to these amendments, your Casual Employment Agreement must also reflect these changes.
The Business Kitz Casual Employment Agreement has been drafted to include these amendments. Business Kitz has a Fair Work compliance team to monitor Fair Work legislation changes to ensure that our employment agreements remain up to date. For any changes which occur after you have purchased our documents, we will notify you by email when changes and updates are required.
