Rules by which Companies Must Abide
Part-time employees have a different set of legal regulations which their employers must follow in order for them to not be violating their employee rights. Some of these requirements include:
- Part-time employees must not work more than 29 hours per week
- If a part-time employee exceed 29 hours in a week, they must be compensated with overtime pay for those hours
- If a part-time employee consistently works over 29 hours each week, it is likely that they deserve to receive benefits, such as health care
If your employer has violated any of the above standards, it is in your best interest to contact a qualified Austin employment lawyer who can advise you on your legal rights.
