    counts so many part time employees as full time for fine purposes if they try to game the system.  Meaning if they have like 60 employees working 28 hours, they'll be fined for 30 full time employees not having insurance.

    Or something like that, I think.

    •  I think that rule (0+ / 0-)

      applies only to determination of whether the company is considered a large employer or not.  If they are considered a large employer though, they only have to provide insurance (or pay the penalty) for its actual full time employees.

      Say you have 100 half time workers.  That is equivalent to 50 full time workers, so you are considered a large employer and you are under the employer mandate.  But you only have to provide healh insurance (or pay the penalty) for your actual full time employees, but in this case you have zero.  So you are able to avoid the penalties altogether.
