Letter Informing that Employer Will Not Offer Casual ConversionA Letter Notifying Casual Employee that Employer Will Not Make an Offer of Conversion informs an employee who has been employed for a period of 12 months that they will not be converted to a part-time or full-time employee.
Within 21 days of a casual employee's first work anniversary, employers are required 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.
An offer of conversion 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.
This requirement does not apply to employers that are small businesses with fewer than 15 employees at a particular time.
Use this letter if:
You want to notify a casual employee that they will not be converted into a permanent position.
You want to be compliant with the recent updates to the Fair Work Act 2009.
