Part-Time vs Casual Employees



Part-time employees who can demonstrate a regularity to their employment, even if it is only a few hours per week but is consistent week in and week out in a particular test period are considered included in a bargaining unit. Whereas casual employees are those non-scheduled employees who are called in to replace others who are on sick-leave, vacation, maternity-leave, etc.

Regular part-time employees in the Hospital sector are required to work an average of two shifts or more per week in any given test period.
