Here in the US, a minimum of 35 hours a week is considered "full time" and entitles you to "full time benefits", such as accruing vacation, sick time, and medical benefits.

Nobody says anything about working 50+ hours/wk, although some companies have (or used to have) "comp time" which was time you could take off without dinging your vacation time. Regardless of how many megahours you had worked extra, "comp time" seemed to end up being "take the afternoon off".
