From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Casual employment is an Australian employment classification under Australian workplace law whereby an employee is paid a higher per hour wage (at least 20%) in lieu of not having their employment guaranteed, and lacking other usual employment conditions such as sick leave.[1] 28% of all Australian workers were employed on a casual basis in 2003.[2]

Casual employees are often contacted regularly by their employers to arrange working times from week to week. As there is no expectation in a casual work contract between employee and employer of ongoing work, employees can legally refuse a specific work opportunity at any time.[3]

Under various workplace awards, employment classification can change if a certain number of hours is worked in a particular time frame.[3]
