The Affordable Care Act is the law of the land and will impact virtually all companies.
The federal government has recently released major regulations and is moving full speed ahead with implementation of the law. It is imperative that companies do the same. Executives in tax, human resources, information technology, and finance need to become familiar with the impending deadlines and develop a comprehensive strategy for addressing key provisions of the law. The Act will affect companies’ benefit designs, workforce composition, reporting systems, tax administration, and bottom line. Failure to understand an employer’s obligations under the Affordable Care Act could result in fines, unforeseen tax liabilities, and reputational risk.
In this presentation, we will present an overview of the Affordable Care Act, including a discussion of the major employer requirements, key effective dates, and what companies need to know in the short- and long-term.
