Workpac decision on casual employees – what employers need to know

In what is being described as employees ‘double dipping’, the Full Federal Court’s recent decision in Workpac v Rossato confirms that an employee who is paid a casual loading on the misunderstanding that they are a casual employee, may also claim permanent entitlements such as paid annual leave and personal leave. You can review a copy of our most recent article with all the details here.

In this webinar Belinda Winter will share with you:

  • an overview of the case and the current state of the law in relation to casual employees
  • how to review and assess your current casual workforce and identify any potential claims
  • how to transfer the status of your current employees from casual to full-time or part-time and an overview of casual conversion
  • tips for properly characterising an employee’s employment status both at the commencement of their employment and during employment (if the employment arrangements change)
  • tips for drafting employment contracts to minimise the cost to employers if a casual employee is found to be entitled to permanent benefits
  • what to do if you receive a claim for back entitlements.
