  1. 40 hours a week is generally considered fulltime; it is only after 40 hours that OT requirements kick in.


  2. Sorry to disagree with my colleague's post, but in California an employer is required to pay overtime when EITHER 40 hours per week OR 8 hours per day has been worked by a given employee.


  3. (a) generally 40 hours a week is full time.
    (b) no, an employer is not required to provide benefits.
