ACA Update: Employer Mandate Delayed and/or Modified by Final Regulations

Posted 8:42 PM by

In July 2013, the government announced that the employer mandate portion of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) would be delayed until Jan. 1, 2015. On Feb. 10 of this year, the IRS issued final regulations regarding the employer shared responsibility penalty. While the full effect of these regulations has not yet been determined, there are some important pieces to highlight:

  • A new group of employers has been created – medium-sized employers, those with 50-99 full-time employees;
  • The start of the mandate for medium-sized employers has been delayed to 2016;
  • The coverage requirement for full-time employees will be phased in – 70% for 2015, 95% for 2016; and
  • Clarification on full-time employee classification is provided, especially concerning seasonal and variable-hour employees
