About the bill

A bill to modify the definition of a full-time employee under Obamacare. This bill would repeal the 30-hour threshold for classification as a full-time employee for purposes of Obamacare’s employer mandate and replace it with 40 hours. Under current law, employees working 30 or more hours per week count toward the 50 full-time employee threshold, which triggers the employer mandate for a company. Obamacare’s employer mandate goes into effect for the first time in 2015, but only for companies with more than 100 full-time workers. More companies, those with at least 50 full-time employees, will face the mandate in 2016. The CBO estimates the bill will increase deficits by $53.2 billion over 10 years.
