Not really. The reason you should use it for ALL employees is that if a full time employee decided to go part time, the employer is obligated to treat them and test them as if they were a variable hour employee for the entire latest test period completed (SMP or IMP) in order to see if they would continue to be eligible in a corresponding stability period.
If you do not use the FMLA (Unpaid Leave) for a full time employee and this scenario comes – going from full time to part time – you would not be crediting the employee with the right amount of hours.
