One thought on “How Many Hours Are Part-Time Employees Allowed To Work?

    So technically, a part-time employee can be asked to work 40 hours without the benefits of a full-time, salaried employee. The Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 sets standards for labor laws but does not specify what constitutes full-time or part-time work in terms of hours worked. A full-time employee typically works at least 40 hours per week. There are no clear-cut laws or policies in the United States that specifically lay out how many hours a full-time worker must work or a part-time worker must work. However, employers are required to pay overtime to nonexempt employees who work more than 40 hours in a work week — whether they are full-time or part-time. it’s generally up to the employer to decide how many hours a part-time worker is allowed to work based on budget, resources, and the amount of work required of the employee. The workweek for a fewone with part-time employment is less clear-cut because employers decide which positions they consider to be part-time.
