Germanna limits hours for part-timers

Germanna part-time workers will have their hours reduced this year.
As directed by the Virginia Community College System in compliance with a directive by Gov. McDonnell's Chief of Staff, Germanna Community College will limit all wage (part-time) staff to an average of 29 hours per week over the year. Part-time faculty teaching loads will also be limited.
Under federal health care reform, employees who average 30 hours a week or more are deemed to be full-time and are eligible for health insurance coverage.
Germanna regrets any negative impact to its employees and continues to seek further guidance and direction as the health care reforms take effect.
The college continues to explore ways it can reduce its dependence on part-time employees. However, budgetary limitations will continue to limit what options the college has for either expanding those covered by health care or hiring more full-time employees.

Germanna’s part-time staff total is now 152. These wage employees are paid for hours worked as opposed to earning a fixed salary.

Germanna has 263 part-time teaching faculty. None of the part-timers qualified for state health care benefits.

According to the Director of Media Relations Mike Zitz, an email was sent out to wage employees at the end of the day Friday alerting them to the upcoming change.
Zitz further elaborated that they are still working to determine exactly how many will have hours reduced. Not all adjunct faculty members were over the limit.

Germanna has a total of more than 600 employees.
