“Size” is the number of workers in your company, this should be calculated on a full-time equivalent (FTE) basis. Identify the number of employees in the last year, in each category, multiply by the appropriate FTE equivalent ratio (e.g. full time = 1).


Full time = 1 

Part time = 0.5 

Temporary full time = 0.25

Temporary part time = 0.125

*qualifying independent contractors = *variable


*For independent contractors who work greater than 20 hours per week for an indefinite or greater than 6 month period can be counted towards your number of workers and should be considered the equivalent of the closest other employment category.  For instance, if working the equivalent of full time, they should be considered 1 FTE and if only part time, 0.5.


If you have contractors who work more than 20 hours per week for more than 6 months they can be counted according to their FT or PT frequency.
