I did a bit of research on what is considered “part time” work around the world and I n many places there are no strict definitions so employers and employees can agree upon hours and the “part time” title doesn’t hold much weight besides intent.
The US, however, defines anything less than 30 hours as part time and ties the requirement to offer healthcare to full time positions. This of course has opened up a number of exploitative job positions which keeps employees at “almost full time” but offers no benefits.
What is the situation like where you live? How many hours per week is reasonable for you?
