i receive 0 benefits i don t get any sort of vision, dental, paid time off, or anything that a full time worker should be getting and it s ******* frustrating when they take my normal schedule which is 24 hours a week, (3 8 hour shifts) and make it into 5 8 hour shifts which equals to 40 hours a week

i forgot to mention that i also do not get any sort of break. i come in at 3 and clock in and at 11 i clock out. is this allowed? i feel like they are taking advantage of not only me but a couple of the other people that i work with

a little insight from someone who knows a lot about this stuff would be much appreciated.

thanks!

You are not entitled to any benefits as a full time employee, because you are only a part-time employee. If you want medical benefits and other benefits that full time employees get, you have to be a full time employee. Working extra hours every now and then and on or around holidays does not make you a full time employee. Breaks are not mandated by law anywhere in the U.S. and anywhere in Canada. They are given only at the employer's option. Most jobs do not give breaks. Law firms don't give breaks. Don't work at one. You would not be happy, If you are going to complain, complain about something relevant. Your posting is nothing more than whining.

If they are reassigning you to full-time employment, then they must start providing any benefits required by law (other than health insurance, depending on having a specified number of employees, there aren't any in federal law). State law may require breaks, but you can be required to clock out, and break time is unpaid.

Perks such as paid vacation, sick leave, etc, are up to the company. While common practice, not required by law.

A company can temporarily request a part-time employee take additional hours, but they remain officially a part-time employee. So is this extra hours just over the holidays or a busy period? Or have you switched to permanent full-time employment?

Steve D:
Yes they can. And breaks are not required by federal law (your state law may require breaks). Full time for benefits is defined as an average of 30 hours per week for a full month (a total of 130 hours or more). If you get 40 hours say once a month and 24 hours the rest of the time, you are well under the threshhold.
Innocent Man:
Check with your state, some states say that if you work over 32 hours a week, you have to be offered the same benefits as full time employees

Quit – they don't appreciate you. You're a tool to them.
