Insights for Part-Time Employee Rights

  • Go straight to a company's Web site for details on employee policies and benefit information. Often this information can be found in a career section of the page. If you have trouble finding exact policies on the Internet, look for the company's contact information. Write an e-mail or make a phone call requesting the information you need.
  • The U.S. Department of Labor doesn't legally distinguish part-time from full-time, so there are no specialized regulations for part-time work. It's up to you to discuss and establish hours and benefits with your employer.
  • Many of your rights as a part-time employee are the same or similar to those of full-time employees, making general employment laws and Web sites applicable and useful.
