With changes to the Fair Work Act 2009 in March of this year in relation to casual staff, all employers are advised to consider the implications of the changes to new and existing casual employees.  Employers are duly reminded of the need to provide all existing and new casual employees with a copy of the Casual Employment Information Statement.

Large business employers (those with 15 or more employees) are advised of the need to complete the process of offering casual conversion to long term casual employees and also maintain good employee records to ensure continued compliance with the casual conversion clauses.

For further information regarding these casual employment changes, please refer to the comprehensive overview included in the winter newsletter, or contact our office for more information.
