How are employers utilizing part-time workers? There are many reasons an employer might consider hiring part-time employees, such as:

  • An alternative to layoffs
  • Reducing the workload during a busy season
  • To complete job tasks that do not require full-time hours
  • Allowing for intermittent leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
  • As a short-term return-to-work arrangement (e.g., pregnancy/workers' compensation injury)

What are the benefits of hiring part-time employees? Offering part-time or flexible schedules can help retain valuable employees who might otherwise leave their jobs due to familiy responsibilities, medical issues, or other reasons.

In addition, hiring part-time employees can keep costs down by reducing the need for overtime and paying fewer benefits.
