A condition of the Affordable Care Act contains a provision within the law known as the employer mandate. This stipulates that any employer that has 50 or more employees must provide health insurance to any employee who works a calculated average of 30 hours per week.
The contention surrounding the employer mandate has been a topic of discussion among economists, politicians and policy wonks. The employer mandate provision essentially provides an incentive among businesses to reduce worker hours below the threshold of 30 hours per week.
