U.S. House Passes Legislation to Redefine Full-Time

The U.S. House of Representatives voted 248-179 April 3 in favor of the Save American Workers Act, which would redefine "full-time" employment under the Affordable Care Act.

H.R. 2575 seeks to reduce the burden on employers in the retail industry by amending the health care law to establish a full-time employee as someone who works 40 hours per week. As currently written, the Affordable Care Act requires employers with more than 50 employees to provide health coverage for workers who put in at least 30 hours a week.

The legislation now moves to the U.S. Senate for consideration.
