Changing the ACA Definition of Full-Time Employee Would Put More Workers at Risk and Increase Federal Spending
The Commonwealth Fund Link to more items from this source
Jan. 24, 2014
"[E]mployers seeking to avoid penalties are more likely to marginally reduce the hours of workers whose schedules lie just above the threshold.... If the threshold were moved to 40 hours, even a modest reduction in work hours-half an hour per week-would allow employers to escape most of the mandate penalties without offering coverage. The number of workers potentially affected is much lower at thresholds below 40 hours."
