This document is a basic, short form agreement for part time employment, suitable for use with employment of permanent, non-award employees on a part time basis. It contains clauses typically used for documentation of part time working arrangements.
If you need a clause dealing with a more unusual circumstance, you may find a suitable clause among the collection of individual clauses offered separately.
In addition, there is a longer form employment agreement available separately (“Basic employment agreement (long form)”), which is suitable for both full time and part time employees. There is also a separate precedent agreement, which allows an employee to move from full time to part time for a specific period of time (“Part-time work agreement”).
