Full-time jobs are generally considered those with work-weeks of 40 hours. But H-1Bs can be approved for a period less than this with or without a concurrent full-time H1B. This also means, a foreign national can concurrently work for more than one US employer on H1B status if such employment is authorized by USCIS as part-time or concurrent employment, as appropriate.

When filing concurrent part-time H1B petitions, appropriate boxes should be checked to let the USCIS know that the alien is already working for an H1B employer and the current petition is being filed as a concurrent petition.

The quota caps are applicable for such concurrent and/or part-time H1Bs also.
