NFF Guidance for Employers: Classification of Long-Term Casual Employees

The National Farmers’ Federation (NFF) has compiled a one pager that contains information about the recent Full Federal Court decision in the matter of WorkPac v Rossato.

The decision confirms that employees who were notionally engaged as casuals but can demonstrate that they were working fixed, regular shifts are considered to be permanent employees in the eyes of the law.

The practical effect is that those employees can retroactively claim leave and other entitlements of permanent employees despite having received a casual loading.
