Employment can be permanent, casual or fixed term.
- Permanent employment is ongoing with no defined end date and can be either full time (usually 38 hours per week) or part time (less than 38 hours).
- Casual employment generally involves no set hours or guarantee of ongoing employment.
- Fixed-term employment has a defined start and end date.
What you can do
- Ask your employer whether you are a permanent, casual or fixed-term employee and if your hours are full time or part time.
