Workless Policy

With the Obamacare requirement that most employers offer affordable health insurance to their employees soon to become law, expect total employment to rise and hours worked/worker to fall. This is because employers will force their employees, where possible, to work less than 30 hours/week. But employers will have to compensate by hiring more workers to make up for the reduced hours/worker, unless firms have already done this. Forecasting is hard!

    Does the employer have to pick up the cost of the insurance or can they simply make the plan available to the employee at % of their cost? Even up to 100% if they’ve never offered insurance to them before?
