Public Sector Slashes Part-Timers’ Hours Ahead Of Obamacare Mandates

Local governments, community colleges and other public employers are cutting work hours among part-time employees to prepare for coming mandates under Obamacare, according to the New York Times.

President Obama twice has delayed the law’s “employer mandate,” which will require large employers to provide health insurance or pay fines. It starts in 2016 for midsize employers and will phase in starting in 2015 for employers of 100 workers or more.

But public sector employers are trimming back work hours now, because their obligations will be based on data from this year, the Times reported.

This article is wrong. Seasonal Officers are NOT put through the entire police academy like full time Officers are. They go through about 1 month of training. Full time Officers go through 6 months of academy.
