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.
