Hello and thank you for entrusting me to answer your question.There is no legal distinction under federal or state law between "part-time" and "full-time" work. A company can force a full-time employee to work part-time hours unless the employee has an express contract guaranteeing them full time work because employment in the state of Washington is "at will" and as such, the terms of employment can be changed at any time.I hope that this addresses your question, although it may not have been what you were expecting to hear. If I can be of any further service to you whatsoever in answering your question, please do not hesitate to let me know.Very best wishes to you moving forward and thank you so much for requesting me to answer your question.
There is a distinction (at least where benefits are concerned), a part-time employee does not receive full-time benefits. Where is this line drawn under Washington State law, e.g. hours worked?
I tried to give you an excellent rating and a tip. However, when I attempted to do so I received an error page and I don't know if any of it went through. Just know that I tried.
