  •  The formula in PPACA for (0+ / 0-)

    "fining" the business 2000 per employee is based on total number of employee hours.

    total hours by all employees divided by 2080

    Any remainder at all round up.

    So, if an employer cuts hours to 29 for every employee and then hires a few more people to make up the hours (as they probably still need all of the production hours) they will likely end up with the same approximate total employee hours had they not gone the whole part-time charade. That is, it would make no difference in the calculation of full-time equivalent workers.

    Any business doing this crap has a rude awakening coming and clearly doesn't understand the PPACA.
