CCIQ Comment on Workpac v Skene as Casual Employee Awarded Annual Leave by Federal Court

Friday 17 August, 2018 | By: Dan Petrie

The Chamber of Commerce and Industry Queensland (CCIQ) has expressed concern on the Federal Court ruling of Workpac verus Skene of awarding a casual employee accrued annual leave highlighting a lack of clarity around the definition of a casual employee under the Fair Work legislation.

The Federal Court ruling found former Workpac employee, Paul Skene was entitled to paid annual leave that had been accrued during his two and half years working as a truck driver under a labour hire arrangement at two Central Queensland coal mines operated by Rio Tinto.

CCIQ urges the Federal Government to provide clarity around the definition of what defines a casual worker so as to avoid employers and small businesses being coerced into hiring decisions not of their own making.
