Job security for U Tas casuals (just not many of them)

Observers suggest the recent employment conversion round (as required by the Fair Work Act) led to less than 10 per cent of casuals being offered continuing employment

They are right. The university advises 3121 casuals (including student employment) were reviewed under the new rules (12 months with employer and a regular pattern of hours for six). The result was 11 offers of continuing jobs. Another 15 had already converted, “through other processes.”

“The university will continue its efforts to increase security of employment for our people,” U Tas states.
