    (m) Once a casual employee has converted to full-time or part-time employment,the employee may only revert to casual employment with the written agreement of the employer.

    (n) A casual employee must not be engaged and re-engaged (which includes a refusal to re-engage),or have their hours reduced or varied,in order to avoid any right or obligation under clause 11.6.

    (o) Nothing in clause 11.6 obliges a regular casual employee to convert to full-time or part-time employment,nor permits an employer to require a regular casual employee to so convert.

    (p) Nothing in clause 11.6 requires an employer to increase the hours of a regular casual employee seeking conversion to full-time or part-time employment.

32.1 Transfer to lower paid duties on redundancy

    (a) Clause 32.1 applies if,because of redundancy,an employee is transferred to new duties to which a lower ordinary rate of pay applies.

    (b) The employer may:

      (i) give the employee notice of the transfer of at least the same length as the employee would be entitled to under section 117 of the Act as if it were a notice of termination given by the employer;or

      (ii) transfer the employee to the new duties without giving notice of transfer or before the expiry of a notice of transfer,provided that the employer pays the employee as set out in clause 32.1(c).

    (c) If the employer acts as mentioned in clause 32.1(b)(ii),the employee is entitled to a payment of an amount equal to the difference between the ordinary rate of pay of the employee (inclusive of all-purpose allowances and penalty rates applicable to ordinary hours) for the hours of work the employee would have worked in the first role,and the ordinary rate of pay (also inclusive of all-purpose allowances and penalty rates applicable to ordinary hours) of the employee in the second role for the period for which notice was not given.

32.2 Employee leaving during redundancy notice period

    (a) An employee given notice of termination in circumstances of redundancy may terminate their employment during the minimum period of notice prescribed by section 117(3) of the Act.

    (b) The employee is entitled to receive the benefits and payments they would have received under clause 32 or under sections 119 to 123 of the Act had they remained in employment until the expiry of the notice.

    (c) However,the employee is not entitled to be paid for any part of the period of notice remaining after the employee ceased to be employed.

32.3 Job search entitlement

    (a) Where an employer has given notice of termination to an employee in circumstances of redundancy,the employee must be allowed time off without loss of pay of up to one day each week of the minimum period of notice prescribed by section 117(3) of the Act for the purpose of seeking other employment.

    (b) If an employee is allowed time off without loss of pay of more than one day under clause 32.3(a),the employee must,at the request of the employer,produce proof of attendance at an interview.

    (c) A statutory declaration is sufficient for the purpose of clause 32.3(b).

    (d) An employee who fails to produce proof when required under clause 32.3(b) is not entitled to be paid for the time off.

    (e) This entitlement applies instead of clause 31.2.
