Due to repeated request from clients and friends for a deeper dive into the many intricacies of the employer shared responsibilities regulations of the Affordable Care Act, Bricker & Eckler LLP will be hosting an interactive 3-4 hour workshop on Wednesday, December 4th. This unique format will allow employers to learn:
- The details of the regulations;
- What other employers are doing to comply; and
- Best practices for compliance.
Thanks to delay in the implementation of these regulations, employers now have the time they need to establish policies and to create procedures to accurately measure hours of service during a 12-month measurement period. We will help you understand the regulations and establish those policies and procedure during the workshop.
During this workshop, you will learn:
- Why is there is a need to act now?
- Who must be offered coverage?
- What about substitute and contracted employees?
- What is a stability period, look back period and administrative period and why do I need to know?
- What special rules apply to rehires, change in status and leaves of absence?
- How does this impact my collective bargaining agreements?
- Does my group health plan comply with coverage requirements, is it “affordable” and does it provide minimum value?
What you need to bring:
- Copy of your group health plan;
- List of employees who work less than 30 hours per week; and
- List of independent contractors.
Presenters include tax and employee benefits attorney Chris Poth, who has the experience and knowledge of federal tax and benefits law that is critical to understanding the implications of employers’ group health plan decisions. Joining her will be employment attorney Betsy Swift who has extensive employment law experience and understands the unique needs of employers.
Breakfast will be provided.
Since this is group workshop, you should expect that attorney-client privilege will not extend to this training.
