Challenges, risks and rewards stem from the development of online work platforms and the transformation of a workforce from one employed chiefly on permanent contracts to one increasingly engaged on a short-term or temporary basis.

Increasingly, businesses are utilising freelancers, casuals, contractors, interns and consultants to build a nimble and responsive workforce, avoiding extensive employee payroll and minimising other costs associated with permanent employees. However, what are the risks and legal issues that need to be understood? What are the benefits and rewards of doing this casual engagement within the highly regulated legislative framework?
