First Commonwealth Insurance Agency Legislative Brief
The NEW legislative brief provides information on the Affordable Care Act (ACA) employer mandate and how the penalties will be postponed until 2015.
Health Coverage to full-time Employees
The ACA establishes employer shared responsibility rules, which require employers to provide health coverage to full-time employees (those who work, on average, at least 30 hours per week). Depending on the circumstances, determining whether someone is a full-time employee for purposes of these rules can be difficult and confusing.
We can help you make use of an optional Internal Revenue Service (IRS) safe harbor method intended to provide some certainty for this process.
