1309.01000 – In General/Definition of Appropriate Unit
Casual employees are those who have a sporadic or intermittent relationship with the employer and therefore lack a sufficient community of interest with regular employees to be included in the regular unit. The mere fact that an employee does not work a particular number of days or percentage of time does not, in and of itself, indicate that the employee does not share a community of interest with other unit members. Criteria for distinguishing “casual” employees from employees with collective bargaining rights include a lack of reasonable expectation of future employment with that employer.
