All full-time employees that retain their full-time status will keep their healthcare. Some full-time employees will be given the choice to loose their job or convert to part-time work at no more than 25 hours. Some will just be part of a layoff, and their job will be replaced by a part-time employee. Companies that choose this path anticipate problems asking employees. Some companies will reduce their work force. A very small number of businesses can absorb the additional cost and will try to,make it work.
