On 5 July 2017 the Fair Work Commission announced that it will introduce a casual-conversion clause into modern awards. This clause will allow casual workers to convert to part-time or full-time employment. The FWC has developed a draft conversion clause which can be utilised if criteria are met. The conversion can be refused by employers in certain circumstances. Further submissions on the topics will be heard before the decision is finalised. When the final decision is published we will provide a further update.
