What is MyPortal?
Full-time employees usually work 38 hours a week. They’re paid for a full week’s work and get paid annual leave and sick leave.
Part-time employees work fewer hours than full-time employees. They normally get the same benefits but they’re based on number of hours worked. If you’re employed part-time you will usually work regular hours or shifts.
Casual employees work by the hour or by the day and are less likely to have regular hours. They don’t get paid sick leave or annual leave. Their pay rate is usually higher to make up for this.
