Is casual double-dipping still a thing?

By Beatrice Thomas

New laws to resolve the casual double-dipping issue on entitlements are a big win for business.

As well as a new definition of a casual worker, the Fair Work Act changes ensure court must account for casual loading in claims for unpaid entitlements.  

This means that where a worker is found to not be a true casual, any back pay they receive must be reduced by an amount equivalent to their casual loading. We explain how the changes will impact your business.

CCIWA is here to help members navigate the new IR provisions around casuals. 

Contact CCIWA’s Employee Relations Advice Centre for free help navigating the changes on (08) 9365 7660, or email advice@cciwa.com.
