Under the casual employment amendments to the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth) that came into effect on 27 March 2021, there were some important obligations that employers needed to comply with by 27 September 2021.

These include:

  • By 27 September 2021, an employer (other than a “small business employer”, defined as one that employs less than 15 employees) must, in relation to all casual employees who started their employment with the employer before 27 March 2021, assess each casual employee against the conversion criteria and either:
    • offer conversion to full-time or part-time employment to eligible casual employees (unless the employer has reasonable grounds not to); or
    • provide a notice to each casual employee who is not offered conversion that includes the reasons why the employer has not provided the offer.
  • By 27 September 2021, an employer (other than a “small business employer”), must give each casual employee who started their employment before 27 March 2021, the Casual Employment Information Statement as soon as practicable after 27 September 2021. An employer can choose to give the Statement at an earlier time.
  • A “small business employer” must give each casual employee who started their employment before 27 March 2021, the Casual Employment Information Statement as soon as practicable after 27 March 2021.
