That is partly disinformation, partly nothing new. Today you cannot tell employees that they are independent contractors to avoid paying social security. This rule is no different; you can’t pretend employees are part time through creative bookkeeping when they are in fact full time. What the new decree from our overlords does not do is prevent the actual workaround that is being used. Wendy’s, Dominoes, and the rest can still limit hours to 29 per week and just hire more employees, as long as they are not hiring the same person through a different agency or to perform two different jobs.

Re-read the last paragraph.:

The agency specified that employers could still fall under the mandate if they employ enough part-time workers to equal 50 full-time workers. For example, if an employer has 40 full-time workers and 20 part-time workers, that employer would be considered by the government to have 50 full-time workers and would be subject to the mandate because the 20 part-time workers average to 10 full-time workers – meeting the 50 full-time-worker threshold.

100 part-time = 50 full time so you're still caught.

” as long as they are not hiring the same person through a different agency or to perform two different jobs.”

Next up? If new citizen Jose works 28 hours at Wendy’s, and has another 28 hour job at Burger King, the IRS will classify Jose as a “full-time” worker, and will force Wendy’s and Booger King to split the cost of new citizen Jose’s insurance.

A Wendy's can limit an employee to three shifts per week, and if he's a good employee the manager will trade his name to the Dominoes next door, who will hire him for another three shifts, with the Dominoes manager doing the same for Wendy's.

Uh.... I don't think so. Last line in the article.

The agency specified that employers could still fall under the mandate if they employ enough part-time workers to equal 50 full-time workers. For example, if an employer has 40 full-time workers and 20 part-time workers, that employer would be considered by the government to have 50 full-time workers and would be subject to the mandate because the 20 part-time workers average to 10 full-time workers – meeting the 50 full-time-worker threshold.
