On 22 March 2021, the biggest amendments to the Fair Work Act since its inception passed through both houses (see here)..
If you engage temporary workers, contractors, casuals or any form of non-employees, either directly or through recruitment agencies, the Fair Work Amendment (Supporting Australia’s Jobs and Economic Recovery) Bill 2020 will impact your business.
These changes include:
- Defining Casual employment in the Fair Work Act.
- Giving casuals the right to request conversion to permanent employment.
- Offsetting permanent entitlements based on casual loading.
Businesses will likely need to alter contractual terms, prepare for assessing and communicating with respect to casual conversion rights and understand the approach your third-party suppliers are taking to the changes.
In this second edition of the Workforce Risk Report, we closely examine these changes and how you can implement any changes necessary. We also take a look at other risk updates that are happening at the same time, so you can remain fully across what’s happening in the world of work.
