Casual employees in Australia have some different rights compared to full-time or part-time workers. Here’s a quick rundown of the important stuff:

  • Minimum wage: Casual workers get paid at least the minimum hourly rate set by the government.
  • Casual loading: Instead of paid leave (like sick leave or vacation time), casual employees get a bonus on their hourly rate called “casual loading.” This is usually around 20-25% extra on top of their base pay.
  • Notice and termination: No need to give notice before letting a casual employee go, but some states might offer long-serving casuals a heads-up or some severance pay.
  • Superannuation: Employers have to contribute towards casual employees’ Superannuation. The exact amount and who qualifies depends on the situation. Check the Australian Taxation Office website for details.

The exact rules can vary depending on your industry and state. Make sure your casual employees are treated fairly to avoid penalties down the road.

You can manually create a payslip through a spreadsheet to calculate gross pay, deductions (if applicable), and net pay. Include details like hours worked, pay rate, and casual loading (if applicable). Otherwise, many payroll softwares can handle casual employee payroll. These platforms can automatically generate payslips as part of their package, simplifying the process.

Payroll systems

takes the hassle out of managing casual employees. It automates complex calculations for casual loading, overtime, and net pay, ensuring you comply with minimum wage regulations and avoid errors. Plus, it keeps all your payslips and payroll data organized in one place for easy record-keeping.


First, check with your designated tax authority through their website or direct contact. They’ll provide specific guidelines on reporting payroll and taxes for casual employees in your region.

You’ll likely need to report income tax withholding (depending on the casual employee’s earnings and tax filing status), tax deposits, and payroll reports through Single Touch Payroll. Like all your other reports, maintain a detailed record of this data to use as documentation for potential audits or future filings.

Tax regulations can be complex. Consulting with a tax professional familiar with your location’s casual employee payroll and tax requirements is highly recommended. They can guide you through the specific reporting processes and ensure you’re meeting all your obligations.

Payroller is an STP-enabled software that automatically submits payroll information to the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) – through a secure cloud network – whenever you perform a payrun. Payroller helps you to track, manage and record your payroll while safely sharing that information (and staying compliant) with the ATO.

As a truly one-stop payroll solution, you can manage staff roster, invite your accountant, bookkeeper or BAS agent and even make Super contribution (Beam) on Payroller.
