Document Overview

The Federal Government has recently updated the Fair Work Act 2009 which requires employers to either make a written offer of conversion to the casual employee; or advise the employee in writing that the employer is not making an offer of conversion and tell them why.

Consequently, in the next 6 months employers must assess each existing casual employee and determine whether to make an offer of conversion. 

An offer of conversion only needs to be made if:

  • the employee has been employed by the employer for a period of 12 months ending on the day the assessment is made;

  • during at least the last 6 months the employee has worked a regular pattern of hours which, without significant adjustment, the employee could continue to work as a full-time or part-time employee; and

  • the employer does not have reasonable grounds not to make an offer.

The timing of this assessment in the next 6 months is left to the employer. If the employer decides to make an offer of conversion it must do so within 21 days of making the assessment.

Use this letter if:

  • You have previously sent the employee an offer to convert them from casual employment to part-time or full-time employment.

  • You want to be compliant with the recent updates to the Fair Work Act 2009.

What does this letter Cover?

  • A letter confirming acceptance of the offer of part-time or full-time employment

  • Commencement date

  • The days and times the employee will be working in the new role
