32 hours is considered full time in Richmond. This qualifies the employee for health and dental insurance. Leave time is prorated  based the number of hours worked divided by 40.   Do you have town personnel policies?  To qualify for state retirement, you must work 24 hours per week.

What are the maximum hours a part-time person can work before being considered full time for benefits, i.e.retirement, insurance, vacation?  The town does have their own policy for this but was wondering state and federal laws.  Thanks,  Nancy
