The US Labor Board states :
How many hours is full-time employment? How many hours is part-time employment?
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.
Accordingly, whatever your company has established - however, there is legislation pending in the US Congress that would require any employer of 15 or more to provide benefits such as sick days and health care.
