Recognition of previous employment in Post

CWU members say they believe Post is deliberately not recognising previous employment in Post through labour hire agencies for various purposes such as, redundancy.

The CWU can confirm that basically any period of casual employment with Post is recognised for the purpose of Long Service Leave and Maternity Leave when a casual employee becomes a permanent employee of Post. Some other conditions around recognising prior service also apply.

Recognising prior service for redundancy is not as clear-cut. However, in circumstances where an employee moves from a Post subsidiary to Post proper this may give rise to transfer of business rules that could then recognise continuous service for redundancy. In addition, if Post has breached the maximum period for which a casual or fixed-term employee should be engaged, then credit for prior service may also be arguable.

If unsure, then contact your CWU national or state office.
