Tonight on 8News at 5 and 6, Kerri O'Brien sits down with a Virginia ABC work who says starting Monday he'll lose about 25 percent of his income when a new state-wide policy goes into effect.
RICHMOND, VA—More than 600 part-time employees at the Virginia Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control will soon have their hours cut as the state prepares to enact the Affordable Care Act.
Under the Affordable Care Act, employers would be required to offer health care insurance to employees who work more than 30 hour a week.
As a result, legislation to limit the number of hours worked by the Commonwealth's part-time work force was introduced in January and will be enacted in late April, a memo from the Virginia ABC said.
A Virginia ABC employee contacted 8News about the change, saying he'll soon lose nine to 11 hours of pay each week, when the new policy goes into effect.
He told 8News he currently works around 38-40 hours a week, but under the new policy he'll be unable to work more than 29 hours a week.
Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell's administration says it can't afford the healthcare costs and have to prepare to comply with the Affordable Care Act.
The administration says it estimates if they gave healthcare to all the part-time state employees working 30 hours or more, it cost $110 million.
