Casual Employees’ Travel
In many instances, a casual employee has no entitlement to claim the cost of domestic travel or travelling allowance, as a work base is defined as the place of work where an employee spends most time on duty under their employment agreement.
Where an employee travels for most of their casual employment agreement, the place travelled to becomes their work base. It is an employee’s responsibility (expense) to travel to and from their work base, and travelling allowance cannot be claimed at an employee’s work base.
Please contact the Staff Help Desk for further information.
