The Affordable Care Act’s “Employer Shared Responsibility” mandate requires large employers to either offer compliant coverage to full-time employees or risk a penalty.  The particulars of the law can be daunting and puzzling to employers and those who advise them.  Common questions include: How do I know if my company is subject to the law?  How do I identify full-time employees?  How do I know if I have made a good offer of coverage?  Can I delay the law?  How do I keep track of all of this?  What else do I need to do to avoid penalties?

Educational Objectives:
• Discuss the basics of the Affordable Care Act including the leading questions all employers and their advisors should be asking
• Explore how to delay compliance using transition rules
• Review documenting the offer of coverage
• Explain recordkeeping best practices
• Analyze Internal Revenue Service reporting and disclosure requirements
