How does the 90-day waiting period apply to employees with variable hours?

Printer-friendly versionSend by email

If you have an employee who doesn’t have a regular schedule, you can use a 12-month measurement period (beginning on any date between the employee’s start date and the first day of the first calendar month following the employee’s start date) to calculate whether the employee meets the plan’s eligibility requirements. When using this measurement period, the employee’s coverage must be made effective no later than 13 months from the employee’s start date. However, if the employee’s start date is the first day of a calendar month, coverage may be effective the first day of the next calendar month. For more information on the 90-day waiting period, please read this fact sheet.
