  • Required Benefits Florida

    In Florida, if an employer requires a part time employee to work 40 hours a week, is that employer required to classify the employee as full time and give the same benefits that full time employees receive?

  • #2
    Generally speaking, no. The definition of "part-time" and "full-time" is made by the employer. However, if the employee meets the criteria for whatever they decide is "full-time" and the employer does not change the status SOLELY to keep from offering benefits (specifically, insurance) to the employee, then it's possible there may be an issue.

    Is this a temporary situation?
