In any situation where there is an employer and an employee involved, a contract must be put in place to serve as a legal agreement. This document protects all the parties involved. Within the United States, most employers prefer to offer their workers permanent contracts.

With a changing economy and emerging digital technologies, many companies are increasingly turning to casual employment contracts due to their flexibility. It is estimated that about 30% of employed Americans are contracted with this type of agreement.


A casual employment contract is a type of agreement that allows an employee to work for an organization only when required. At the core of a casual agreement, workers are at liberty to accept or reject the work proposal. Likewise, if a worker accepts the contract, they can stipulate the hours they can work for the company.

A casual employment contract can be valid for a limited time or indefinite. Whatever its duration, this agreement does not warrant continuous work to the employee. Many organizations that source workers from the gig economy prefer this type of contract because they do not have to employ workers permanently.

Features of a Casual Employment Contract

Although this agreement has a temporary nature, it still has some features, which are:

  • Depending on the state, some workers are entitled to paid leave. However, the benefits are not as expansive as does of a permanent employment contract.
  • This type of contract is quite flexible for organizations and workers.
  • Workers choose when to work and the type of work they want to work on. Likewise, employers select the type of work they give to workers and they do not have to pay unless work is done.

Fields and Terms of a Casual Employment Contract

A casual employment contract is made of fields and terms. Some of the fields of this agreement are:

  • Name and address of the employer.
  • Name and address of the employee.
  • Date of commencement of the contract.
  • Fields for signatures.

The terms of a casual employment contract are:

  • The compensation is to be given to the worker.
  • Role of the worker.
  • Duration of the contract if any.
