Casual employment is when workers are hired only when their services are needed. In this practice, employees’ service can be terminated without notice. It is a type of employment where the employee’s status and timetable may be subject to sudden changes. It involves minimal financial risk for both the employer and the employee. An employee can be dismissed without any obligation to provide severance pay.
A casual employee can resign from his duties without giving proper notice. There is no provision for probationary periods in casual employment. Casual employees also receive higher pay rates than regular full-time employees because they do not receive the same leave or travel entitlements as regular employees do. Most companies prefer to hire casual employees through casual employment contracts. The contracts document the terms applicable to the employees. A casual worker agreement provides a safeguard against possible future disputes by ensuring clarity, and it is also an effective means of resolving future conflicts.
