North Platte business owner Mark Wilkinson of Wilkinson Development said he is looking into his options. Wilkinson said businesses might share part-time workers. He said McDonald’s and Holiday Inn Express are putting something in place. The worker works at both places, putting in more hours overall, but remaining in part-time status at each company. “That’s probably the trend,” Wilkinson said.

Employers pursuing such a "solution" are buying far more legal problems than they know. 29 CFR Part 791, primarily dealing with the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 (FLSA), has been in effect for many decades. Over 70 years ago, employers sought such a "solution" to avoid overtime pay under the FLSA and countless legal decisions have established that employers can be held jointly and severally responsible for violating employee rights.

I can assure you that lawsuits brought against employers for violation of the "Affordable Care Act" will result in the courts relying upon past precedents established under the employee protection statutes already on the books!

Johanns said it’s time for the White House to wave the white flag and begin working to unwind “this tenuous law and replace it with something that will actually lower insurance costs for hardworking families.”

What that would be, Johanns didn’t say.

It is called massive Tort reform and kicking illegal citizens out fo the ER for everything except critical care IF THAT...
