Following recent developments in the law concerning casual employees, Employment Innovations’ Legal Team will be running a webinar at 1pm on Thursday 22 November 2018.

In the webinar we’ll discuss the lessons learnt from a recent court decision (Workpac v Skene) where an employee engaged as a casual was found in reality to be a permanent employee (and the employer was ordered to backpay annual leave entitlements). In particular, we’ll focus on helping businesses reduce the risks associated with engaging casuals.

We’ll also take you through changes to modern awards that came into effect on 1 October 2018 which enable casual employees to request conversion to full-time employment (“casual conversion”).

Update: Due to high demand, we will be running another webinar on this topic. Join us to help you and your business reduce the risks associated with engaging casuals at 1pm on Thursday 6th December 2018. To register your place please click here.
