Do I have to work 40 hours to be considered a full-time employee?

Agency: Licensing and Regulatory Affairs

 
 
The laws the Wage and Hour Program enforces do not define full-time or part-time employment.
 
If your employer chooses to distinguish full time and part time employment in order to determine eligibility for fringe benefits, the employer is required to pay those fringe benefits in accordance with their written contract or written policy.
 

The answers provided are not meant to be a substitute for legal advice.
