- You work part-time or gig work.
- Your hours have been reduced at your employer’s initiative and your employer cannot offer you full-time work.
- You work part-time at up to 80% of the maximum hours of a full-time employee in your industry, or
- You work occasional gigs or are unemployed and have accepted full-time work lasting up to two weeks, or
- Your hours have been reduced due to a temporary lay-off
- You earn part-time business income from a business which the TE Office has deemed part-time, and your hours can be tracked (particularly if you are working on commission)

If you start in a full-time job lasting more than two weeks, you are not entitled to earnings-related allowance during this period.
