Attorney-General Christian Porter says new industrial relations reforms aim to give casual workers a choice, despite unions saying it strips casuals of their rights.

The bill would define casual employment and allow casuals who work regular shift patterns for a year to become part-time or full-time if desired.

But the ACTU believes the changes would make it harder for people to leave casual work as there is no guarantee for employers to follow through.

“The workers miss out as things presently stand.

“We just want people to have a choice.”
