Part-Time Work

There’s no specific number of hours linked to part-time work; instead, a part-time worker works anything fewer than their full-time counterparts. Generally speaking, that means a part-time worker is likely to be working fewer than (and anywhere up to) 35 hours per week. There are many myths associated with part-time work, but the truth is that working fewer than 8 hours a day can be even more productive than a fulltime schedule, and many people who otherwise “opt out” of work altogether would stay in the workforce under a part-time work arrangement.
