There is no hard and fast rule or brightline in your state. However, full time is commonly considered to be 35 hours per week or more (i.e. 7 hours per day paid work). While you have the right to appeal, in the absence of definitive rules, government agencies and the courts look to the common understanding of the term, which is most likely at least 35 hours per week.
