If your part-time employee (no benefits or student employee) works throughout the fiscal year, we’re slightly changing the maximum allowable work weeks, effective July 1, 2019.
There is NO change for the “must work less than 28 hours per week” requirement.
The change applies to the maximum number of allowable work weeks in a fiscal year: 46 weeks will be the maximum allowable work weeks. We must maintain less than a total 1300 hours worked in a fiscal year for these employee groups.
The reason for this change is new legislation in Michigan regarding paid leave. We will be in compliance by maintaining the 1300 hour maximum over 46 weeks. This maximum will also keep us below the threshold for the Federal ACA laws for health care.
As a supervisor, please continue to make sure that your part-time employees are working no more than 28 hours per week, and no more than 46 weeks per year.
