Letter of Casual Conversion to Part-Time or Full-Time EmploymentThis Letter of Casual Conversion to Part-Time or Full-Time Employment offers a casual employee the opportunity to become 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 would like to offer a casual employee a part-time or full-time employment position.
You want to be compliant with the recent updates to the Fair Work Act 2009.
What does this letter Cover?
An offer of employment converting an employee from casual employment to part time or full time employment.
