Casual Employee NZ

The Employment Relations Authority and Employment Court have the power to determine the real nature of an employment relationship. Even where an employee works on a truly casual basis, if the employee is dismissed during a period of casual engagement the employer will carry the onus of justifying the dismissal.

Casual or Permanent?

Determining whether employment is casual or permanent can be determined from a number of factors, these include:

  • Regularity and pattern of work hours.
  • Whether work is allocated by a roster.
  • Whether an employer requires notice before an employee is absent.
  • Whether there is a mutual expectation that employment will continue.
