For Part-Time/Adjunct Faculty, Temporary Workers and Student Employees

In order to comply with the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and Collective Bargaining Agreements (CBA), the College has implemented a work hour limitations for part-time/adjunct faculty, temporary workers and student employees effective January 1, 2015.

The ACA stipulates that anyone working an average of 30 hours or more per week must be offered medical benefits. In preparation for the implementation of the ACA, the College has put the following hour limitations in place:

Employee Responsibility:

Responsibility for strict adherence to these limits is shared among employees and supervisors. Employees must inform supervisors of all MCC work assignments and are expected to self-monitor the total hours they work each week. Supervisors are also expected to monitor and adjust employee schedules to adhere to the work hour limitations noted above.


These work hour limitations will keep MCC in compliance with the ACA and CBAs. Violation of the work hour limitations puts individual departments and the College at risk for significant fines. Failure to adhere to these limits will result in possible disciplinary action.

Supervisors and employees can access a Frequently Asked Questions document for more information.
