About the Webcast

While Australia deals with the COVID-19 pandemic, the Full Federal Court have confirmed that casual employees working regular and systematic hours are likely to be considered permanent employees. Regardless of what their contract says and casual loading payments.

The prospect of having to defend up to 6 years’ worth of back-pay claims from one casual employee can have a devastating impact on any business. Let alone those with multiple casuals due to the industry and nature of the job.

In this one-hour free webcast, our employment relations legal expert will provide clarification and tips on:

  • Further uncertainty from Workpac v Rossato
  • What this means in the real world?
  • 25% loading and casual conversion process
  • How to limit exposure and prevent ‘double dipping’ backpay claims
  • Live Q&A and general update

With EOFY fast approaching, this is a crucial time to review that your documents match your legal obligations and intentions. Join our interactive webcast as we help employers be Workplace Assured with their workplace practice and obligations.

Feel free to share this event to colleagues or other local businesses who would benefit from this free webcast. For further info, contact us on 1300 575 394 or
