CASUAL LABOR DEFINED.
The Chief Inspector of Factories (Mr H. M. Murphy) explained to-day that until section 29 of the Amending Factories Act becomes law wages boards were free to define casual labor. Under the Act casual labor might only be fixed for half the total hours of an ordinary working week. No one working more than 24 hours per week in a week of 48 hours might now be accepted as casual. The question had arisen as to whether anybody employed all the year round, by working less than the named hours, might be called casuals. That question had been referred to the Crown Solicitor, who had advised that anyone so working, whether all the year round or otherwise, was “casual labor.” ' <ref’The Ballarat Courier (Vic. : 1914 – 1918) Wednesday 13 January 1915, page 5.</ref>
