  • Salary without benefits Florida

    I was hired two years ago as a salaried employee. My responsibilities were to keep the computer systems working - it was estimated i would neeed 16 - 20 hours per week. But there were times i worked 30 and even 40 hours.

    My pay was set. I was told that I was not full time so I did not get benefits.

    However, i notice my pay stubs listed 40 hours per week with an hourly rate that came out to my yearly agreed upon salary.

    I was recently let go. I wondered if I was entitled to health insurance for the years I was employed. All other employees who were full time received them. Since my pay stub said 40 hours was i conisdred full time.

    The hours on your paystub do not mean you were full-time as defined by the medical plan rules. Many payroll systems require a "standard" number of hours for salaried exempt employees, and 40 is the most regularly used. The deciding factor is what you were actually working and the definition of "eligible employee" in the plan document, not a number on your paystub.
