City Hall Preparing for Affordable Care Act Provision
Some temporary and seasonal workers in La Crosse city hall may see their hours cut by next year. The federal Affordable Care Act requires employers to offer health insurance benefits to workers who put in thirty or more hours per week. The city has employees who work more than thirty hours per week but do not get benefits. Those employees will be limited to 29 hour work weeks. Although the changes don't take effect until next year, the city is working on tackling on definitions for those employees now.
