Best Answer:

Sally Cruz: Learn to use periods.

You can demand anything you want, but it sounds like you were hired as part time, then put on a full time schedule so that your employer didn't have to pay benefits. Ask your boss about your job status, and put the screws to him a little about how the company justifies paying you part time but expecting you to work full time. If you are worth it, the company will make you full time. If not (this isn't a negative evaluation of you personally, just a business judgement) there's not much you can do other than start looking for a new job.

Other answer:

Sally Cruz:
An employer is not required to offer benefits to employees. The only exception is the health insurance mandate for companies of 50+ employees. Even then, the Fair Labor Standards Act does not stipulate how many hours is considered full-time. Generally, it's anywhere from 30-40, but this isn't a law.

If your part time status with your employer, then no you can't demand to have benefits as part time workers (no matter how many hours they work) usually don't get any.
Try having a chat with your boss and see if they are willing to change your status to full time, if you get full time status then you can start receiving benefits.

Sorry, but no, the company getsto determine the rules to qualify for vacation and for full time/part time designation.
