Shamu? A shame. More obamacare news.

Post  fshnski on Tue Sep 10, 2013 2:30 pm

The SeaWorld chain of amusement parks is cutting hours for thousands of its part-time workers from 32 hours per week to 28 hours as of November, the Orlando Sentinel reported.

Market analysts told the newspaper the move appears to be directly tied to the Affordable Care Act’s definition of full-time workers as those who work 30 hours per week, instead of the traditional 40 hours.

The law’s “employer mandate” requires businesses with 50 or more full-time employers to provide adequate health coverage or pay fines. In July, the White House announced it would delay the mandate by one year, to 2015.

Critics of the health care law said the 30-hour threshold is already compelling larger employers to cut hours because they either do not want to or cannot afford to provide health care for these newly eligible employees that now would be considered full-time.

I wonder how much the part timers make per hour?

Fsh, have you heard "adequate" defined yet? What does Obamacare consider adequate?

"Adequate" means you don't necessarily have to go to a foreign country to get any health care.

"Small business owners who thought they were off the hook for ObamaCare regulations until 2015 may be in for an expensive wake-up call next month.

"Beginning Oct. 1, any business with at least one employee and $500,000 in annual revenue must notify all employees by letter about the Affordable Care Act’s health-care exchanges, or face up to a $100-per-day fine. The requirement applies to any business regulated under the Fair Labor Standards Act, regardless of size. Going forward, letters are to be distributed to any new hires within 14 days of their starting date, according to the Department of Labor."

Fail in this, and get a $1,000,000 lawsuit against you!
