FIJI Sugar Corporation chairman Abdul Khan says casual workers are hired at the Labasa mill during busy periods only and then let off when their services are no longer required.
Mr Khan says no permanent worker had been relieved of his or her job.
"During our busy times, we take on casual workers and once they have finished doing what they are asked to do, they are then released," he said.
"Other than that, no permanent worker has been sent home. The casual workers will be released when they complete the work they have been tasked to do upon hiring them.
"Re-employing the casual workers will depend on our requirements."
