EMPLOYMENT AGREEMENTS FOR CASUAL EMPLOYEES

EMPLOYMENT AGREEMENTS FOR CASUAL EMPLOYEES

Often overlooked, casual employees should have in place some written form employment contract, just like the full time, permanent or part time employees in your business.

Clearly articulated employment terms and conditions in writing make the employment relationship professional from day one and saves lots of time later on when a dispute or problem arises.

A simple properly executed employment agreement in place for all your casual employees should be on your business to do list.

To prepare for this, you should be clear about what the minimum entitlements are for the position especially when it comes to pay, hours of work, penalty rates, leave entitlements and notice of termination periods.

These are the key and most basic terms that should go into any casual employment agreement.

You may also need to consult the relevant award to find out the above.

The duties and role and responsibilities of the position should also be spelt out clearly.

What you expect from them should be made clear and what they should expect from you should also be made clear.

You also may want to customise the agreement to reflect things that are specific or important to your business, i.e confidentiality or important items of your intellectual property or your brand.
