Just create a new casual pay item for the employee, within the same employee record, and only use it when you need to.  Just be aware though that at times, the number of hours that you include for that particular pay, may remain as memorised hours for the next pay.  That means that on the next pay run you will have to either edit the number of hours applicable, or delete the line completely within the pay cheque.

Wouldn’t it be easier to amend the permanent part time contract to add the additional hours for the three months.

Glenda.  It is a simple and straight forward exercise to simply add the casual hours to a pay run, when they occur, without the need to change contract details, particularly if the casual hours per week vary.
