Palm Beach State College is cutting the hours of more than 100 part-time employees and hundreds more adjunct faculty to avoid having to provide health care coverage required for workers under the federal health care law.
Workers who now work 30 hours a week will work 27.5 hours a week after July 1, according to a letter sent to employees in April and confirmed by a college spokeswoman. The school’s 895 adjunct faculty members, who teach more than half the classes at the college’s four campuses, will be limited to teaching three classes per semester.
