Here are the questions we’ll be asking. We’d love your input!
- Q1: Only 8% of part-time workers say they have heard about the Affordable Care Act from their employers – why is this number so low? And do you think it should be higher at this point?
- Q2: 31% of part-time workers think the quality of their healthcare will be worse under ACA – do you think they are right or wrong and why?
- Q3: 45% think their healthcare will cost more – do you think they are right or wrong and why?
- Q4: What do you think will be the hardest thing for employers about complying with ACA?
- Q5: 36% of part-time workers say they work more or less than their scheduled hours. what kind of a problem might this pose for employers and do you think we’ll see stricter enforcement of scheduled hours?
- Q6: 52% of part-time workers think their scheduled hours will change or aren’t sure if they will change under ACA – what do you see happening?
- Q7: ACA is causing a lot of controversy. Is there a “right” way to manage ACA?
