New Fair Work regulation clarifies offsetting rules for casual loading payments

Employers who incorrectly classify employees as casual instead of full-time or part-time could be responsible for back paying various entitlements under the National Employment Standards (NES), following a recent Federal Court of Australia decision in Workpac v Skene [2018] FCAFC 131.

NANA has previously raised the potential for “double dipping” arising from that case and called on and supported the Federal Government to act to protect Newsagents from what would be a crippling added employment cost.
