ASA Addresses Proposed Employer Regulations Under Health Care Reform

On Dec. 28, the Obama administration released proposed regulations under the Affordable Care Act detailing the obligations of employers under the law. ASA has published an issue paper that focuses on the key provisions of the proposed regulations of particular interest to staffing firms—for example:
  • how the “look-back” rule will apply to new “variable hour” employees
  • the new “break-in-service” rules
  • the common law status of staffing firms (and why it matters)
  • the proposal to allow businesses to determine their coverage and penalty obligations on a “disaggregated” basis
ASA members can download the paper at Staffing firms interested in learning more about the proposed regulations should register for the free ASAPro webinar scheduled for Feb. 14. Attendees will also get an overview of a new ASA online calculator for estimating their costs under the “play or pay” provisions of the law.
