Q. Can we change an employee’s status from full time to part time if he takes intermittent leave and his hours fall below what we consider full-time work?

A. Presumably, you want to change the employee’s status from full time to part time because part-timers aren’t entitled to the same level of employee benefits as full-timers. That would be unlawful. You may not change an employee’s status—or terms and conditions of employment—solely based upon the employee’s use of FMLA leave
