VINCENNES, Ind. (WTHI) - Students are likely the reason that teachers show up for work and there's no argument that teachers are in the business of educating. But, there's a little hold up in the affordable health care act that's making it hard for some school corporations to keep some staffers at full-time schedules.
"If you're above the 30 hour mark we have to provide affordable healthcare, or at least insurance" said Greg Parsley, Superintendent of The Vincennes Community School Corporation. On Wednesday Parsley explained that he would have to make changes in his district to keep things running smoothly; namely coaches, lay coaches, helpers and "and substitute teachers," said Parsley, "we're going [to] break, and when I say break, they'll work four days and have to take a day off because I can't afford to offer them the health insurance."
Plaintiffs filed the lawsuit in a federal court in Indianapolis on Tuesday. The suit argues, the I.R.S. overstepped its authority in imposing "employer mandate" regulations on state and local governments under the federal health care overhaul.
The lawsuit contends the IRS is improperly treating Indiana as a taxable entity under the Affordable Care Act with regulations that impose financial penalties on state and local governments.
Something Parsley calls "Catastrophic."
