Recipe overview

While the exact definition may differ between states, there is a general consensus that to be considered a part-time worker, an employee must be working under 30 hours a week.

Otherwise, if they’re consistently exceeding that threshold without receiving full-time benefits, it can be considered an IRS and Employee Retirement Income Security Act violation.

That’s why it’s important for managers to be made aware when their part-time employees are working longer than they strictly should be—so they can take action to reduce the scope of the employee’s responsibilities, or consider bringing them on to the team on a full-time basis instead.

With this Recipe, you’ll be able to stay on top of your part-time employees’ hours. When a part-time employee works more than 30 hours a week, Rippling will automatically send a notification to their manager, alerting them to the situation.

Want to set your threshold at 40 hours instead? As with all our workflow Recipes, you can customize this template to your exact needs, including when it should trigger, what the actions should be, who it should go to, and more.
