    Lawyers agree

    Answered . California law does not provide a definition for what constitutes "full time" employment. California leaves this definition to each individual employer. Unless there is an unlawful purpose or discrimination, an employer is entitled to reduce the number of hours. There is no minimum number of hours.

    This is not legal advice and does not create an attorney-client relationship.
