Q: In a mass layoff of fewer than 500 workers, do you exclude part-time workers from the total workforce, the group of workers laid off, or both?

A: Both. In determining whether the 33% threshold for a mass layoff involving fewer than 500 workers has been reached, you divide the total number of fulltime workers laid off by the total number of full-time workers. The term "fulltime workers" means workers at the single site, excluding part-time workers.
