The law defines a “full-time” employee as one working more than 30 hours per week, and employers with more than 50 full-time employees must provide government-approved health insurance or pay a penalty. Even though the employer mandate has been delayed for a year, the stories keep rolling in of businesses that have already acted.
Jed Graham of Investor’s Business Daily has compiled a list of 363 employers who have cut back employees’ hours due to incentives created by Obamacare’s employer mandate.
Here are a few state and local governments taking action because of Obamacare:
Indiana’s state government cut hours for part-time and temporary employees from a maximum of 37.5 hours per week to fewer than 30.
Georgia’s Fulton County is cutting a number of employees to fewer than 30 hours per week.
Delaware’s state government is cutting hourly and seasonal employees to a maximum of 29.75 hours per week.
Alabama’s Huston County is cutting hours of part-time employees to fewer than 30 per week.
