Casual Employment Law and Legal Definition

Casual employment means the occasional or incidental employment, the employment which comes without regularity. If the employment is upon an employer's business for a definite time, as for a week, or a month, or longer, it is not a casual employment. Similarly, if the employment is for a part of one's time at regularly recurring periods of time, it is not a casual employment. [Thompson v. Twiss, 90 Conn. 444 (Conn. 1916)].
