What is a Casual Worker?

A casual worker is someone who has an agreement to undertake work, but who is under no obligation to accept the hours offered. At the same time the organisation do not offer hours on a regular basis, but purely on an 'as and when required' basis. Generally they will be used to cover sickness, periods of annual leave or special project based work.
