I work part time at a local community college bookstore. The college now restricts me to 29 hours a week to maintain a part time status. In the past, at various times of the year, I would work up to maximum of forty hours a week (graduation, book rush, book buy-back etc,). As I am a retiree I have full insurance coverage through my previous employer. May I opt out of my current employers insurance requirements? Also, during these “busy” times we employ temporary workers. The college now limits these employees to 29 hours per week. Is this correct as they are temporary employees?
