Under the National Employment Standards (NES), casual employees have the opportunity to transition to permanent employment, a process commonly referred to as ‘casual conversion’. To facilitate this transition, employers are required to assess employees' eligibility for conversion from casual to permanent status.
Casual Conversion eligibility is determined by two essential criteria that employers must consider:
- Casual employees must complete 12 months of continuous employment with the same employer
- Employers need to assess the employee's work pattern over the prior six months. If an employee has worked a regular pattern of hours on an ongoing basis, and could continue working these hours in a full-time or part-time capacity, they become eligible for conversion to either permanent part-time or permanent full-time employment
Further information regarding Casual Conversion can be found on the Fair Work website.
