Exclusive Feature: are casuals cause for concern? (HRD, 22.6.2020)

In May 2020, the case of Workpac Pty Ltd v Rossato (Rossato) saw the Full Federal Court confirm that casual employees working regular and systematic hours with “predictable periods of working time” were likely to be considered permanent employees, regardless of what their contract said – and irrespective of the payment of a casual loading.

Key insights are discussed including:

  • How the case may set a precedent for your workers
  • Why legislation may change in the near future 
  • Reviewing your casual employment practices
  • Whether casual employees should be transitioned to permanency
  • Importantly – why you don’t need to panic
