Hmmm so now a city has cut hours to avoid Odramacare.
Let me guess they are greedy just like Papa John.
The city has 59 permanent part-time employees working 32 hours per week. None are eligible for health insurance through the city now. However, one part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act will require employers to offer insurance to part-timers working 30 hours or more.
The change in the law does not take effect until January 2014, but when it does it will include a look-back period to determine who is eligible. Cedar Falls Administrative Services Director Richard McAlister said the look-back period can be as short as three months, but the city will opt for a 12-month period so seasonal employees will not qualify. Hours are averaged over the entire year.
McAlister said if all 59 employees whose hours will be cut were to take advantage of the health insurance it would cost the city $855,000 per year. LINK
