Messing with Obamacare
Once upon a time, I did HR for the small nonprofit I worked for. We had part-time employees. In a few cases those employees were covered by our health insurance. We paid a pro-rated share of their insurance. It was very simple. It required easy arithmetic calculations. I could do them without help. To solve the part-time employee problem, one that should never have existed in the first place, remove the minimum hours' requirement and require that employers pay the pro-rated share of employee premiums. Minimum of fuss. No employers cutting employees to 29 hours. Problem solved.
