Part Time Worker for Government Agency – Story
I have been working for Government Agency for nine years part time, working between 30 to 37 hours per week; and I was told that under his act I can only work 29 hours per week. This is going to hurt me financially. I can not work full time because I retired from the same retirement system that I work for. Is their anything that can be done to give me more hours per week?
Yeesh, this is ironic. They can offer you more hours and coverage, and then you can deny the coverage ( you just can’t get marketplace tax credits). If they don’t want to do that, then they choose to move you to part-time. There is no “can’t”, this is a choice, by an agency, who works for the taxpayers, who hired the officials, who passed the law.
How does one even make sense of this? I would try talking to your employer. If i’m hearing that you are on Medicare then you can’t enroll in the individual coverage anyway.
I have heard the same story over and over. Employees have also said I don’t need coverage; but their hours were still cut to 29…
