Working part time is working between 1 and 34 hours per week“ (United States Department of Labor, 2007, October 3).
“A work schedule that encompasses fewer hours than the standard full-time schedule, typically with pro-rated salary, benefits and career advancement. Employees working reduced hours should have workloads to match and working less than full-time should not affect an employee’s status or opportunities for advancement” (FlexPaths, n.d.).
