A person employed temporarily, occasionally, intermittently, seasonally, not regularly. Mitchell v Main Feldspar Co. 121 Me 455, 118 A 287, 33 ALR 1447; Anno: 33 ALR 1452. For sonic purposes, particularly that of the ap- plication of a workmen's compensation act, a “casual employee" is one working for an employer but not in the usual and normal course of the business or industry regularly pursued by the employer. This distinct meaning of the term in compensation cases is based upon definitions of “casual employment" in compensation acts. See casual employment.
