With the impending ObamaCare rule that employers with 50 or more full time employees must offer employee health care as a part of their employee benefit package, employers are considering their options.

According to Federal guidelines, 27 hours per week is considered a full time employee. States will have different specifications; be certain to check for your specific state requirements.

With these options in mind, it may influence whether or not you fall into the 50 full-time employee category.

Gary,

Thanks so much for publishing Elaine's post and for sharing it with the BizSugar community. These details about employee vs. contractor status are so important and will become even more so as major changes in employee health insurance rules kick in.

Thank Heather, lots of potential changes coming to small business in 2013. I think the hardest part is all of the unknown, it's hard to plan when they politicians can't make up their minds.

Many employers don't realize that it doesn't matter if you call someone an employee or a contractor, it only matters if they fit the criteria for one in the eyes of the Govt.
