Employing casual workers provides businesses with an increased level of flexibility. However, it's important to remember that casual employees may be entitled to super.
Here's the basics:
Super guarantee is currently calculated at 9.5% of a casual employee’s ordinary time earnings. This includes their wage plus any casual or shift loadings for ordinary hours of work. It also includes commissions and some allowances, but it doesn't include overtime payments.
