Australian new Bill introduces a definition of casual worker

March, 2021
  • The Australian Parliament adopted a Bill that defines a casual worker as someone offered work without commitment of continuing and indefinite work.
  • The Bill sheds light on the possibility to convert the casual work contract into a long-term full or part-time employment relationship.
  • The Law also clarifies employers’ economic responsibility in case a casual worker is later on recognised as an employee.
