Indiana University shifting 50 jobs to temp agency

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP): Indiana University is cutting about 50 hourly workers at the Bloomington campus and shifting that work to a temporary staffing agency.

University spokesman Mark Land says the move is partly being made to avoid having to add those workers to the IU health insurance plan as required by the federal health care overhaul if they average more than 30 hours a week.

Land says shifting 50 of the physical plant department's 650 jobs will also relieve the administrative task of managing the hours of seasonal workers.

IU will have the Manpower agency hire the maintenance and custodial personnel after Sept. 28. The university will pay the agency an administrative fee to manage the workers.
