As reported in the Feb. 10 issue of Staffing Today, the U.S. Department of Labor has issued answers to frequently asked questions outlining the guidance expected to be issued by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service and the U.S. Department of the Treasury for defining who is a “full-time employee” for purposes of an employer’s obligation to offer health coverage or pay penalties under the Affordable Care Act.
The FAQs also address a proposal to provide a “safe harbor” that would allow employers to determine whether the health plans offered are “affordable,” as well as the automatic-enrollment requirements applicable to employers with more than 200 employees. ASA members can read an analysis of the FAQs that the association’s legal staff prepared to determine the likely effect of the guidance on staffing firms.
