Question:


What is considered part-time work in Florida?


Answer:


The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) does not define full-time employment or part-time employment. This is a matter generally to be determined by the employer. Whether an employee is considered full-time or part-time does not change the application of the FLSA, nor does it affect application of the Service Contract Act or Davis-Bacon and Related Acts wage and fringe benefit requirements.

However, for the purposes of health insurance, Florida considers anything over 25 hours per week "full-time" for eligibility for participation in the group health care plans. See FS 627.6699(3)(h).
