Letters Endorsing Bills Exempting Student Workers from the ACA Employer Mandate

August 13, 2014

Letter from ACE and a group of seven higher education associations endorsing two bills that would exempt full-time students from the Affordable Care Act’s (ACA) employer mandate, which requires large employers—including colleges and universities—to offer health insurance plans to employees working 30 hours a week or more.

The two bills are:

The Student Worker Exemption Act of 2014 (H.R. 5262), introduced by Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC)

The Student Job Protection Act of 2014 (H.R. 5298), introduced by Rep. Michael Turner (R-OH)

Along with ACE, associations signing the letter include:

  • American Association of Community Colleges
  • American Association of State Colleges and Universities
  • Association of American Universities
  • Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges
  • Association of Public and Land-grant Universities
  • College and University Professional Association for Human Resources
  • National Association of Independent Colleges and Universities
