Part-Time Employee Definition

Term Definition
An employee who works fewer hours than the standard full-time schedule per week for one employer. In many cases this is less than a 40-hour workweek, or less than 80 hours in a two-week time period.

Extended Definition
Part-time employees are those who work a reduced work schedule, either on a daily or weekly basis. Many work flexible hours that can vary from week to week, depending on the needs of the company. Some part-time employees may share a single job assignment with another employee, each taking a portion of the total hours.
