The staffing industry is committed to compliance with the ACA, and the American Staffing Association (ASA) is actively working to help staffing firms and clients understand the rules and how they will affect staffing services. These answers to frequently asked questions are designed to help staffing professionals understand the basic ACA requirements and compliance issues.
FAQ 7. Can Temporary Employees Be Terminated Or Refused Reassignment To Prevent Them From Reaching Full-Time Status Under The ACA?
Terminating or refusing to reassign temporary employees prior to the employee achieving full-time status would likely be viewed as abusive if the primary purpose is to avoid the ACA employer coverage or tax obligations; such action may also violate ERISA if the primary purpose is to deny benefits.
