Changes to Casual Employment and what it means for Employers

Employers will now have to give every new casual employee who commences with their company what is called Casual Employment Information Statement, in short (CEIS), either before, or as soon as possible after they start their new job.

A employer does not have to provide the CEIS more than once in any 12 month period, if the casual employee starts at different stages or times throughout the 12 month period.
The CEIS was first published this year on 29th March 2021 and updated on 20th May 2021.
The updated version provides more information about the definition of a casual employee and minor changes to information about casual conversion.
You can download the CEIS statement here.

Employers can give the casual employees the CEIS in person, by mail, email, emailing a link, emailing a link to a copy of the CEIS, by fax or by another method, as long as it is received.
