  • Seasonal vs. Full-Time Illinois

    Is there a rule/law that dictates when an employee becomes 'full-time?' We have seasonal and technically part-time employees that consistently work over 1900 hours per year.

    With very limited exceptions, no, there is not.

    In any case, with the exception of FMLA and a 401k, what is considered full time for benefits purposes is generally determined by the number of hours worked in a week, not in a year.
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.
