Casual Pay

Casual Pay workers are defined as workers hired under the authority of the Administratively Determined (AD) Pay Plan for Emergency Workers (Casuals) to perform work occasioned by emergencies such as fire, flood, storm, or any other unavoidable cause.

From this point forward, Casual workers will be referred to as “Casuals.”

This section provides information to help those involved in the payroll process for Casuals, including Casual Pay Specialists.

A major component of this site is the Casual Pay Guide, an online publication that details the roles and responsibilities of our client organizations and the Payroll Operations Division in processing payroll-related actions.
