Part-time workers included in ACA's mandate for employers of 50 or more

by Paula Burkes Published: July 11, 2012

If an employer exceeds 50 full-time employees on a temporary or seasonal basis, it may not qualify as a “large employer” if the number of full-time employees exceeded 50 for 120 days or fewer.

Q: What should employers do to prepare?

A: Employers first should run the calculation to determine if they qualify as a “large employer.” If they do, then employers need to analyze whether it is better for them to provide health insurance coverage that meets the minimum essential coverage requirements or pay annual penalties — $2,000 per full-time employee, minus the first 30 workers who are excluded from the assessment.
