At Macquarie U 48 casually employed professional staff qualify for conversion to continuing employment under the new Fair Work Act process.
But how many, if any, academics qualified? CMM asked.
Macquarie U replied “a substantial number of staff would have required significant changes to their duties and hours of work undertaken to warrant conversion to continuing full time or part time employment.” Which is undoubtedly true, but not what was asked.
All up the university employs 3150 casuals.
