Recently I have been dismissed from my place of work after 40 weeks, prior to this I worked as a casual employee for 2 weeks, there was no break in the employment. Does the casual work count as part of my employment if I wish to go for wrongful dismissal? I have not been given any reason for my dismissal, however I even have written and asked for a full clarification and recorded my right to appeal.

Can you please offer a detailed explanation of what happened exactly? Did you work 2 weeks as casual and then went on to a regular contract with the same employer? Casual work implies that you don't have a guarantee of your employment so legally the employer can dismiss you without any explanation.

Casual employment means the incidental or occasional employment, which comes without regularity. If the employment is upon the employer’s business for a particular time, as for a week, or a month, or longer, it’s not a casual employment. Similarly, if employment is for a part of one’s time at regularly recurring periods of time, it is also not a casual employment.

What was written in the terms of your employment? Well, it is better to read the norms in the appointment letter before you sign the same. This will make things easier to understand. Without any written evidence, you cannot question any company's decision as well.

Casual employment can be defined as where an employee is employed when and if needed, and where there is no particular expectation of continuing employment.
