daily hire

Daily hire employees as those who are entitled to only one day's notice of termination regardless of working full-time or part-time. This arrangement is contingent on the terms of the relevant award or registered agreement.

Daily hire is a type of employment where the employer can end the employment with a very short notice of just one day. This might be used in industries where work demands fluctuate rapidly. The ability to employ someone on a daily hire basis must be specifically allowed in the relevant employment award or agreement.
