Obamacare doesn’t affect me
So, I still have six months or so until I have to worry about the Affordable Care Act, right? Besides, I have fewer than 50 employees so I don’t have to worry at all, right? If I ignore this, it will go away, right? Even I have been sticking my head in the sand trying to ignore, forget, avoid (pick a word) the PPACA, aka Obamacare. You know what? I can’t any longer and you shouldn’t either.
What’s our most important task right now?
Decide how many employees you have – not just your “known” full-time employees. You have to know how your part-timers “count” toward your overall headcount as well. (Hopefully, your broker has been working with you or has provided you with the resources you need to stay compliant. As soon as you know how many employees you REALLY have (I know – you thought you knew, right?!) you’ll be able to determine what your next step will be in order to assure you will be in compliance as needed.
And, no matter how many employees you have, ALL employers are required to provide written notice of the “Exchanges” to their employees no later than October of this year. The Department of Labor has issued a Model Notice that you can use.
Are you concerned about the impact Obamacare will have on your business? Do you know what the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) means for your company’s growth? Are you compliant in order to avoid future fines and penalties?
