Andrew Jewell, Principal Lawyer at McDonald Murholme says full-time and part-time employees essentially have the same rights. But this view is starting to change and there are certain statutory exceptions for long-term casual employees. Under discrimination law, all employees are protected from dismissal or being treated less favourably on the basis of characteristics such as gender, age, ethnicity or race. All employees, regardless of their employment status, have an entitlement to superannuation payable by their employer. Full-time and part-time employees have less flexibility than casuals. Jewell warns employees need to be aware this flexibility is a two-way street. Jewell says when choosing if you want to be employed on a full-time, part-time or casual basis, your main concern should be the level of job security you want.

Attendance on campus is strictly limited to permitted workers and exempt students; face masks must be worn at all times. If unwell, get tested and do not come to campus. Casual or part-time work is a great way to support yourself while studying. It's also a way to gain real-world work experience that looks great on your resume. Employers look favourably on students who can balance study and work commitments because it shows good time-management skills and a willingness to work.
