That’s totally insane. People are so uninformed, but for someone in HR to handle the call in this way is absolutely crazy. Is the company private or public? Also, what’s this about you working 40 hours but being “part time”? Are you a contractor?

@vorpalette:  LOL! HR said that!? That’s crazy…haha. PS, I worked full time hours being part time for four years – it’s BULL. So frustrating.

@vorpalette:  I dk about your state but in California I think it is illegal (at least it was when I worked retail) if you average 40+ hours for 2 pay periods or 8 weeks or something like that NOT to get full time benefits…I knew about this but was scared that I would lose my job if I asked for it until some other people finally petitioned with HR about it. It’s worth looking into your labor laws if you would be willing to fight for it?

@vorpalette:  First off, that shit cray.

Secondly, I can’t understand how they’re just “choosing” not to give you benefits. I work for a staffing firm (in GA) and am baffled. All of our consultants have the option for benefits even if they’re working 2 hours a week…moreover, I’m surprised that once the companied hired you as their employee, they didn’t offer you benefits. And it’s NO WONDER we need the ACA.

@vorpalette:  You are unfortunately correct. They don’t have to offer you benefits or consider you full time even though your working full time hours. Michigan sucks!!!

Do I have to work 40 hours to be considered a full-time employee?

Agency: Licensing and Regulatory Affairs

 

 

 

The laws the Wage & Hour Division enforces do not define full-time or part-time employment.

 

 

 

If your employer chooses to distinguish full time and part time employment in order to determine eligibility for fringe benefits, the employer is required to pay those fringe benefits in accordance with their written contract or written policy.
