I am negotiating a return to work and I need some assistance as to how to work out what a reasonable casual rate would be for my profession. I previously worked full time on a salary of $100k. I then resigned after having children. My employer has contacted me and asked if I would like to return to work as a casual employee and asked me what my expectation of a casual rate would be.
A salary of $100k works out to be approximately $50.00 per hour (based on a 38 hour week). I therefore think that a reasonable casual rate would be around $70.00 per hour, as I would not be entitled to all of the benefits of a full time employee, such as annual leave or guaranteed hours.
Does anyone have any experience going from full time to casual in the same position and could you please offer your thoughts on what a reasonable rate would be in my position.

Full time salary vs Casual rate

Casual loading is usually 15-25% so I would base calculations around that.
Also, if you are using long day care then you may want to negotiate a daily rate rather than an hourly rate. That way you will be hired for full days rather than a fee hours in the middle of the day (which will barely cover the whole day of care you would need to pay for).

25% added to $50 would be $62.50. So perhaps I should be happy with around $60 per hour. That gives me a good ballpark figure to work with. Thanks for the tip about day care but I'm planning to use grandparents

Sorry another side to having a day rate - you don't get extra if you have to stay back back late or come in early. Depends on which industry you're in as to what would work best
