Adjuncts at College in Louisiana Get Paychecks After Extra Delay

The Chronicle of Higher Education

Adjunct instructors at Delgado Community College, in Louisiana, will no longer have to wait seven weeks to receive their first paychecks of the semester, The Times-Picayune reported.
Adjuncts at Delgado had complainted to the newspaper about the college’s decision to extend their wait for their first paychecks from five weeks to seven, two weeks later than the date listed in their contracts. College officials had blamed the delay on new compliance requirements associated with the Affordable Care Act, though many adjuncts at Delgado questioned that justification.
Delgado later announced that the instructors’ checks would be issued ahead of schedule, with pay deposited into their accounts on Tuesday.
