(BLOOMINGTON) - 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 told The Herald-Times that shifting 50 of the physical plant department's 650 jobs will also relieve the administrative task of managing the hours of seasonal workers.
