County required to make some temp employees permanent under ACA

(WMC-TV) - New controversy surrounding the Affordable Care Act played out in a Shelby County Commission meeting Wednesday.

The mayor's office says the county is now required to make some temporary employees permanent, but taxpayers will have to foot that bill.

The change comes because Affordable Care Act requires employees who work 30 or more hours per week to get health care benefits.

The Shelby County Mayor's Office told commissioners the new Affordable Care Act means the county must convert 19 temporary employees to permanent employees.

The administration could not say how much extra taxpayers will spend long term on the change.

"It is going to cost you more because you are going to offer a benefits package to these individuals," said Shelby County Deputy Chief Administrative Officer Kim Hackney.

The plan did not bode well with commissioners who view it as a back-door maneuver to circumvent the budget to hire new employees.

Commissioners called for a more concrete definition of temps and part-time employees.

"We're going to have to work through policy to change that," said Hackney.

In the end committee voted against the resolution. It is unclear how this will move forward to comply federal regulations.

    After double overtime, the Toledo Walleye came out on top and beat the Indy 3-2 Thursday night for a sweep in the series.

They will play the winner of the Fort Wayne and ...
