The experiences of one of Australia’s biggest retailers has highlighted the business case for investing in permanent employment contracts, but in doing so has added to the ongoing permanent vs casual debate between employers, unions, and workers.

    Flexibitity of work is not to be confused with casual irregularity.

    Employees want the option of having regular but less hours to "balance" work and life. Casual employment does not do this as you never know from one day to the next whether you will have work or whether you can make personal plans (because you don't want to refuse casual work if it is actually available, it might not come around again)
