A special Roy Morgan SMS survey of 881 Australian businesses shows that 34.5% are set to be affected by the Federal Court’s ruling on the entitlements of casual employees. Most worryingly, as many as 123,000 (5.5%) businesses say they will be ‘forced to close’ because of the ruling. A majority of small businesses (54.5%) with 5-19 employees and medium businesses (54.5%) with 20-199 employees say they will be affected by the ruling in some way. Over a third of large businesses (36%) with 200+ employees and just under a third of micro businesses (32%) with 1-5 employees say they will be affected by the ruling in some way. Roy Morgan CEO Michele Levine said the Federal Court’s ruling on casual employees has the potential to have a significant impact on hundreds of thousands of Australian businesses.
