    Hi,

    I am a long term casual employee (17years) in the Bus industry, who has worked regular, systematic employment for many years. I am seeking clarification on my entitlement to select rostered work based on my seniority.

    I have been informed that I cannot choose any lines of work deemed as available for Permanent employees because I am a Casual employee. This option restricts my choice of roster options. Are there any legal grounds under Employment Law for me to challenge this?

    Thanks for any help or info you could provide.

    No. Being employed for 17 years as a casual does not give you seniority over full time workers.

    Are you doing long or short distance haulage work? Have you raised these issues with management?

    If yes to above and you found shifts reduced, best to lodge an general protections claim or an F10 contravention of Modern Award terms- s pecifically consultation provisions.
