The Employer’s Affordable Care Act – Your Pre-Game Warm-Up for “Pay or Play”

accountantFor many “large” employers, determining whether to “pay or play” may not be an easy process.¬† The ACA’s employer shared responsibility provision goes into effect in 2014, making advance preparation even more important if you have part-time, seasonal or “variable hour” employees.¬† Since you are only required to either potentially pay (a penalty for) or play (offer coverage to) those individuals who are considered your full-time employees, your ability to substantiate¬† whether an employee is or is not “full-time” will be critical to successfully navigating the “pay or play” provisions of the ACA.
