Evolving Economics of the Part-Time Workforce

2014 Annual Conference
Workplace Application: Learn how the ACA and other legislative changes could erode the cost differential between part-time and full-time positions.

How will the part-time workforce change over the next decade? What is the impact of the Affordable Care Act (ACA)? The ADP Research Institute has used its proprietary research database to identify critical economic trends in the cost and composition of the part-time workforce and its role as part of the total U.S. workforce. This session looks at trend data, identifies potential impacts associated with ACA and proliferating leave administration, and presents different scenarios around the future cost of the part-time workforce. Learn about current trends underway with the part-time workforce and how these trends will ultimately impact the economics of the part-time workforce.
