Affordable Care Act Produced Little Change in Part-Time Employment

The Affordable Care Act’s coverage provisions and employer mandate produced limited evidence of an increase in part-time employment, a new study has found.

Using data from the Census Bureau’s Current Population Survey, the study did not find increases in the frequency of employees working in either of two part-time categories: 25-29 hours per week or fewer than 25 hours per week.

Those findings applied to 2013, 2014, and the first half of 2015.

Researchers also did not find a reduction in 2014 or 2015 in the frequency of employees working 30-34 hours, which the study said may have been expected based on the speculation employers would seek to avoid the insurance mandate by reducing employee work hours below the 30-hour threshold.

Modest increases in part-time employment were shown among workers with limited education, as well as among workers ages 60-64. For details, see Moriya et al. (2015).

Little change seen in part-time employment as a result of the Affordable Care Act. Health Affairs, 35(1), 119-123.
