will not be able to work more than 28 hours a week and will not be eligible for health insurance benefits from the tax-supported district.
Hourly employees will comply with the Administrative Rule that hourly employees may not work more than 19 hours per week for the academic year.
ACC will have to cover the health insurance for adjuncts who work the equivalent of thirty hours a week or more. However, determining how this is calculated is complicated. The summer will not factor in and neither will teaching at multiple state colleges, universities, or ISDs. Gerry Tucker indicates the administration will be meeting to consider how to count teaching as the equivalent to working 30 hours. Currently, the administration is looking into the way TRS calculates the work week.
The ACA will be problematic for adjuncts with hourly jobs on campus because their hours will be added to their teaching loads. Because of this, Tucker says that adjunct/tutors working in the Learning Labs will most likely be held to new rules regarding hourly employment.

I just shake my head at the fact that employers can do whatever they need to, to avoid obamacare, but us individuals are stuck with it, and if we refuse it, we get FINED (or TAXED).
