Only a handful of employers have considered reducing full-time employees’ hours to dodge the employer mandate of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), according to a new survey by the Society for Human Resource Management. Ninety-one percent of employers said they have no plans to cut full-timers’ hours, and 90% said they won’t reduce their employee headcounts to avoid having to comply with the health care reform law.

The ACA requires all organizations with 50 or more full-time equivalent employees to provide health insurance to at least 95% of full-time employees starting in January 2016, or else pay a penalty. The law defines full-time work as 30 or more hours per week.
