This should be fun
According to the SQF Code:
18.104.22.168 The SQF practitioner shall:
i. Be employed by the supplier as a company employee on a full-time basis;
ii. Hold a position of responsibility in relation to the management of the supplier’s SQF System;
iii. Have completed a HACCP training course;
iv. Be competent to implement and maintain HACCP basedfood safety plans and food quality plans; and
v. Have an understanding of the SQF Code Level 2 and the requirements to implement and maintain SQF System relevant to the supplier scope of certification
Now, according to United States Law:
The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) does not define full-time employment or part-time employment. This is a matter generally to be determined by the employer.
So, if company policy were to dictate that certain employees are considered full-time for "X" amount of on-site hours, with the duration of their work hours be offsite, would an auditor be able to challenge that assessment under the code?
