MONTPELIER, Vt. -

The Vermont State Colleges have ordered the food service provider Sodexo not to change how its employees receive benefits.

Sodexo wants to redefine full time employees so that workers who take the summer off would now be considered part-time. Sodexo says its about complying with the Affordable Care Act. Employees could then seek health insurance thru the new online exchange. Sodexo has also promised to continue other benefits for the effected employees.

But the chancellor of the state colleges says there is too much uncertainty about the impacts on individual employees for the colleges to okay the changes in Sodexo's contract. UVM also contracts with Sodexo but has not yet made a decision about whether to challenge the personnel changes.
