What is Part-time Employee?
The ‘Part-time Employee’ is a staff member who works for fewer hours compared to what their employer would consider full working hours. The exact amount of hours calculated for a part-time employee would be different for different companies.
As the part-time employee works for fewer hours, their remuneration would also be less than a full-time employee. Similarly, most companies would not provide any additional benefits apart from their compensation to a part-time employee.
Individuals generally choose part-time employment as a means of securing additional income apart from their full-time job’s salary. On the other hand, there are employees who choose several part-time jobs over having a single full-time job.
