Adjunct professors dealing with health care change

Adjunct professors dealing with health care change

Many college students are beginning the preparation for the fall semester. Students may notice the lack in classes available or lack of professors assigned.

Frustrating as this may be for new and returning college students, it is just as much so for the college and professors themselves.

Adjunct professors are taking a hit in hours as the new federal law, requires health benefits for employees who work 30 or more hours in a company of over 50 employees

This will begin on January 1, 2014, when the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2009 will come into effect.

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2009 will place a very large price tag for colleges throughout Virginia, which will eventually trickle down into the laps of students with higher tuitions.
