COLUMBUS, Ind. (AP) — Ivy Tech Community College is cutting hours for its part-time professors in preparation for implementation of the federal health care overhaul.
The law that takes effect in 2015 requires employers to provide health insurance to part-time employees who work 30 hours a week or more.
Ivy Tech President Tom Snyder tells The Republic that the college system reduced most of its part-time faculty's credit hours to nine to provide leeway for unresolved issues such as how preparation time is counted.
About 60 percent of Ivy Tech's professors work part-time. Snyder says college officials would prefer that figure be 50 percent, but he says that would require an additional $50 million in state funding.
