How Many Hours Do I have to Work to Qualify for Benefits?

Navigation:  Home > Legal Questions >How Many Hours Do I have to Work to Qualify for Benefits?


There are no federal or state laws governing when you become eligible for work-related benefits. In fact, there are no laws requiring that an employee even provide benefits of any sort, including health benefits, sick leave, or vacation leave.


In general, the eligibility period for benefits, if your employer offers them, should be outlined in your company handbook, and should be enforced among all employees of the same level the same. Further, the eligibility period for health benefits is often dictated by the health insurance provider and your company, usually anywhere from 30 days to a year.
