  • New York Labor Law for Part time workers

    We are a private company looking to hire a part-time receptionist. Hours would be 08:30am-1:30pm Monday thru Friday. All other employees have medical benefits and 401k. While this part-timer will be on pay roll, we do not want to pay her benefits. Is there a requirement under NY Labor Law that we have to pay benefits if the receptionist works a certain number of hours?

    No, there is no such law in any state. What is considered benefits-eligible is up to the employer and/or their insurance carrier, and it is quite common for part time employees not to receive benefits.
    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.
