Dothan Schools May Outsource Substitute Jobs to Circumvent Obamacare

Dothan Eagle (12/10/12)

Kelly Services on Monday outlined a plan to the Dothan, AL, school board involving outsourcing substitute teaching jobs so the school system would not have to offer health insurance to some substitute teachers who may be eligible for it under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Kelly Services representative Patrick Mallory said Kelly employees would fill substitute teacher jobs, and the city would be spared from having to pay Social Security and employment-related taxes, administrative costs, and possible liability for health insurance under federal health care reform. Dothan City Schools chief financial officer Mike Manuel said that over the long term, utilizing Kelly would be cheaper than hiring substitute teachers directly.
