Employer Responsibilities and the Affordable Care Act

From Event: Employer Responsibilities and the Affordable Care Act, held October 2014.

Program Description

With the employer mandate of the Affordable Care Act getting pushed back, it is imperative that employers use this extra time to ensure they are adequately prepared. As a result, it is crucial that attorneys who advise businesses thoroughly understand the issues - including the legal issues that arise out of cutting full-time employee hours, and whether it is more prudent for a business to pay the penalty rather than offering coverage to all of their full-time employees.
