    How hard can it be to ask the person directly?

    this is a new fairwork ruling where regular casual can ask their employer to be converted to permanent.
    It's not guarantee and there are a number of requirements to be met. If the employer refused, they need to provide valued reason.

    If you are under an awards, by law, employer need to notify all their casual employees by january 1 2019.

    Yeah, it explains why they sent it to you in paragraph (p)

    Its a right under FWA that a casual employee that work full or part time hours, can ask to be converted to a full or part time employee. You lose the casual loading, but get job security, personal days, and annual leave.

    How many hours a week do you do? Have you asked about being a full or part time employee?

      Nope, going to uni at the moment. Can't really do full time or part time.

    •  

      I'm confused … you couldn't ask for this before?

      •  

        Yes but now your employer needs a reasonable reason to decline the request. Before they could just say no

        •  

          Not quite right. Before if they got into giving a pattern of regular shifts after a time you could make a case that there was regular work so it should be permanent. This makes it broader and easier. (Not a legal opinion but it has come up in my work over the years.)

    It is to provide you with information about the variation of the Industry Award you are employed under.

    And, as crashloaded has pointed out, they had to.

    are you Hatcher, Hamberger, Kovacic, or Bull?
    If so may need you to sign and date on the bottom right

    If you actually read it, you'll know why it was sent………………..or do you expect your manager to provide a nice little summary.

      AmeJaieXD has a job (kind of like school for grown ups, they have to go there everyday) and their manager (their work mum/teacher) sent them an email to read. AmeJaieXD takes their job very casually so didn't read it properly and would like to know why their work mum sent them the email so they are asking their online friends (me and you) why they got sent the email to read.

      Wordplays answer is funnier, but the gist of it is, there is a new right for employees who have been casual for a while to request to be made permanent.
      Permanent staff get paid a bit less, but get sick days and holidays, and can’t be terminated as easily.
      If a casual employee requests to be made permanent the employer must now consider it and grant it if they have no reasonable reason to decline.

      Not sure it really will make a difference, and could have unintended consequences (I saw a thing from the QLD chamber of commerce suggesting mixing up casuals hours so they would be less likely to qualify, for example), but it is now law.

        I originally interpreted Savas's question as a hilarious sarcastic dig at the OP. But since seeing that he upvoted what I assumed was a patronising response from you, I am now conflicted. :/

          I’ve got kids, and the world is full of stuff like casual vs permanent staff that you know about only once it’s explained. One kid is working a lot this holidays and is enjoying the blessing of income tax for the first time, so we have been talking about that.
          They do basic financial advice at school, but how can they cover things like “should I give a tax declaration to two part time jobs if I am not sure I will earn under $18k, and what happens if I guess wrong.”

            @mskeggs: Fair enough, I'm sure others will find your response useful anyway.

            Is there a purchase goal in mind or are they motivated to accrue wealth?

            Are they aware of and happy with how their tax is being spent?

            You're a good Dad. Mine has an economics degree but told me to get lost when I asked him to check my tax return as a schoolkid. On the bright side, I was motivated to think for myself from an early age. I'm sure this parental neglect and all the abuse were carefully cultivated diligent foresight…

    Go see a solicitor

    It's part of the GRIA that casuals with regular shifts (12 months worth?) Can ask to be changed to part time permanently.

    This is voluntary and results in losing the casual loading (20%), but you get sick and annual leave in its place.

    You earn about 7.5% less as a part time employee, so whether this is best for your situation is up to you.

    BECAUSE MOST LIKELY THE LAWS ETC HAVE CHANGED AND IT IS NOW LAW THAT THE BOSS/S HAVE BEEN DIRECTED BY THE COVERING UNION TO INFORM "ALL" THEIR WORKERS OF THE CHANGES

    Do you work in fast food? Note that second boss is a Mr Hamberger.
