HR peeps? I have a HR question

I worked for a company through a temp agency for 6 months the entire time the company I worked for said they were going to hire me well they did on what they call:
Part Time Variable? I still get 40 hours but no benefits.
(insurance, holiday pay or sick pay)

Never heard of this before is this something new?

First things you need to check on are likely in the employee handbook. #1 is what it takes to get benefits. Many times benefits are tied to being fulltime, but you may work enough hours already to be classified as FT. The ACA changed that threshold for a lot of companies' health insurance (esp if over 50 FT equivalent employees). #2 is what your classification means. You may be listed as a seasonal employee. In which case, polish up that resume because your time will be limited to keep you off the benefit plans and try to dodge paying OT (state's rules vary).

This is what I'm thinking there is a lot of us that are PT Variable and we charge to project numbers so I guess when the project dries up its easier to get rid of us?
This is a huge company too. 30k plus employees

Don't do it. Companies like to use this as a way to get a full time employee without paying for the benefits of a full time employee. In fact, I'm not entirely sure how it's legal or if it even is legal in some cases.

My friend works for Lowe's. He got hired by them, then they fired him and rehired him again as a contractor. He works the same hours, does the same thing, but has no vacation, benefits, etc.

30k+ employees? They don't give a shjt about you. Pack up and move on, you've already invested too much time there than you should.

^This.

Hard to believe these brilliant politicians and lawmakers can't seem to think two steps ahead and anticipate some of the unintended consequences of the terrible legislation they let their friends and lobbyists write for them.

Have they even read it yet?

I know it's unfortunate but the situation sounds humorous

"You're fired. Oh we were just kidding Johnny."

Been going on long before Obama. It used to be a way to dodge paying overtime, vacation, or sick leave.
