PPACA and Educational Employers
Which Employees Qualify for Coverage?
Because school districts employ a wide variety of workers including substitute teachers, bus drivers, aides, non-teaching coaches and facility staff, educational employers are unsure which employees qualify for coverage under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). The primary challenge is two-fold: first, school districts must decide if they meet the PPACA's "large employer" criteria— making them subject to its provisions—and second, they must determine which employees are considered full-time and must be offered coverage. This paper examines the determination processes for each of the four designated employee types and demonstrates how a time and attendance system can ease the administrative burden of PPACA compliance facing educational employers today.
