Q. When can a part-time employee be compared to a full-time employee?
A part-time employee can be compared to a full-time employee in the following circumstances:
- Where both the part-time employee and the full-time employee are employed by the same or associated employer, or
- Where both are employed in the same industry or sector of employment; and
- Where the part-time employee performs work which is equal or greater in value to the work performed by the 'comparable' full-time employee.
