What makes a full-time employee?

Q. How many hours must employees work to be considered full time? Part time?

A. There is no legal standard for how many hours per week constitute full-time or part-time work. Typically, employers define full-time as 37.5 to 40 hours per week. Often, there is a definition for part time in employee benefit plans if part-time employees are excluded from coverage. However, you are free to define those terms for your company.
