Answer Bank Tag: Rehire rules for school bus companies?

Question:

We are a transportation company that provides school bus service to local school districts. We have heard conflicting information on how to handle the hours of service for our bus drivers, as well as when we can classify them as being a new hire.

Under the ACA, since we are not an educational institution, are we able to use the 13-week rule for rehire for our bus drivers, as they will be off during summer break for a little over 13 weeks. If so, we would be able to reclassify them as new hires and not have to offer them health coverage? They would never complete an initial measurement period test.
