Call to Action: Restore the 40-Hour Workweek! Encourage Co-sponsorship of the Employee Flexibility Act
Co-sponsor the Employee Flexibility Act - H.R. 2782/S. 1510
Issue overview: There was a 40-hour workweek bill recently introduced in both the Senate and House. The Employee Flexibility Act of 2019 was introduced in the Senate by Senators Todd Young (R-Ind.), Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), John Barrasso (R-Wyo.), and Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) and in the House by Reps. Jackie Walorski (R-Ind.), Dan Lipinski (D-Ill.), Mike Kelly (R-Pa.), and Collin Peterson (D-Minn.).  The legislation would amend the Internal Revenue Code to repeal the 30-hour threshold for classification as a full-time employee for purposes of the employer mandate in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and replace it with 40 hours.
What’s at stake:  For many companies to maintain a workable budget, the current 30-hour workweek definition has forced them to cut many employees’ hours to below 30 hours per week – forcing employees into part-time jobs that drastically hurt the affected employees and their families.
What you can do: Enter your information and send a quick note to Congress to co-sponsor the Employee Flexibility Act.
