how many hours a full time employee in california suppose to work and also a part time employee what is really the regulation
Hello Edwin and welcome to JustAnswer.In California, there is no law which defines how many hours full time or part time employees work. Employers are free to define "full time" however they see fit. Usually, it is 40 hours a week, but some employers grant full time status for employees who work less than 40 hours a week. Of course, anyone who is not designated as a full time employee would be a part time employee.California wage law addresses only the issues of regular pay and overtime pay for non-salaried and otherwise non-exempt employees. Basically (there are some exceptions, but they are of limiited application), if an employee works more than 8 hours in any single day or more than 40 hours in any work week, overtime pay kicks in at 1.5 times the regular pay rate.Thanks for asking your question here on JustAnswer.
