    There is no federal law defining full time vs part time, and as far as I know no state laws. It's up the the employer to define it. Mine uses 35 hours.

      Full text of ACA is http://housedocs.house.gov/...

      See pages 154 to 161 (as marked on top of pages) for part time definition, large vs small employer and employer responsibilities.

      The closest I could find was an IRS document which allowed for "full-time" calculations relative to certain tax requirements as being a 40-hour work week per employee being considered.

      This seemed further evidence that this is all about their concern with minimizing their financial expenses in any way they could argue to do so.

      So, I agree they are stretching in this claim.
