Casual employee

What is a Casual employee?


‘Casual Employee’ is an employee who has a casual relationship with the company. Such an employee is hired to meet higher workload demands for a short duration of time. They may even be hired as a temporary replacement for another full-time employee who has left for a long vacation or leave.


There are no formal agreements between the company and the casual employee and either of the two parties are free to terminate their employment as and when required.


Similarly, they do not receive any benefits like a full-time employee. They may not even be paid for holidays and week-offs. However, the added flexibility of leaving whenever required and no-frills makes it attractive to a certain kind of individual.
