How many hours of work per week is time considered part time?

Return to FAQ Videos


Whether or not you’re a part-time or full-time employee doesn’t have a lot of value for making that determination, other than for internally. In other words, the employer may distinguish between part- and full-time for things like health benefits, and they can regulate those hours how they like. There’s no specific definition of part-time employee under Florida law; however, there is a health care statute that says if you work more than 20 hours a week, you might be eligible for benefits. So, depending on why you’re asking that question, whether you’re full- or part-time, it may not matter other than for whether or not you’re entitled to health benefits.
