Hiring employees

Changes to casual employment – industrial relations reforms

On 26 March 2021, sections of the Fair Work Act relating to casual employees were amended.

The Amendment Act introduces a:

  • Casual Employment Information Statement
  • definition of casual employment
  • pathway for casual employees to move to full-time or part-time (permanent) employment.

We’re reviewing the information in this online course.

For information on the changes, visit Changes to casual employment – industrial relations reforms.
