When I asked for paid time off they told me I was not hired as a full time employee, but I was and do work 40 hours a week. They do offer other full time employee paid vacation and do have a hand book stating this. Can they pick and choose who they want to be a full time employee? And what could I do to get this back pay for vacation time? 13,881 posts Posted Today, 09:23 AM The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) does not define full-time employment or part-time employment. This is a matter generally to be determined by the employer. To learn more about your rights, you may be interested in visiting the Employment Law Center as a good resource. You may also want to contact the Nevada Department Workers Compensation Directory of Business and Industry: Office of the Labor Commissioner to address your specific situation.
