High Court offers clarity around casualsAugust 5, 2021

The High Court has injected certainty into the casual employment debate, and simplified the test considerably, by overturning the Federal Court in Rossato. The High Court accepted that  a casual has no firm advance commitment from the employer as to the duration of the employee’s employment or when the employee will work, and provides no reciprocal commitment to the employer; but  the firm advance commitment has to be a binding commitment, not just an expectation of further work.
The High Court judgment marks the end of a long journey for WorkPac, which previously lost Skene and Rossato in the Federal Court.
