NRF Urges 40-Hour Definition of ‘Full Time’ Under Health Care Law
The National Retail Federation (NRF) this week urged Congress to pass the bipartisan Save American Workers Act, which would change the Affordable Care Act's definition of full-time employment from 30 hours per week to 40 hours. The NRF sent a letter to the House saying all votes related to the bill would be considered key votes for the association's annual scorecard. "NRF greatly appreciates the bipartisan support for changes to the Affordable Care Act's definition of full-time work for benefit eligibility," NRF Senior Vice President for Government Relations David French wrote. "It is, after all, a common sense approach."
