Casual employment engagements are intermittent and irregular periods of employment where the employee is only called in as and when required. Each time a casual employee is engaged, it is a stand-alone period of employment that comes to an end with no on-going expectation of employment or income. If at any time the employment shows a regular pattern of days, hours or income, it is likely that the relationship should be considered permanent employment.
