New ACA Compliance Updates: How To Satisfy Employer Shared Responsibility Information Reporting Requirements

Webinar: ID# 1001742
About This Course:
The ACA’s employer shared responsibility provisions apply to all applicable large employers (ALEs). An “ALE” for a calendar year is an employer that employed an average of at least 50 full-time employees per month during the preceding calendar year. An employer’s status as an ALE for a calendar year is determined by taking into account full-time employees and full-time equivalents.

If you are an ALE or part of an ALE-controlled group, you could be liable for excise taxes if you fail to offer qualifying coverage to a full-time employee for a month in which the full-time employee receives a subsidy through a healthcare exchange. A full-time employee is an employee who averages 30 hours of service per week during a month (regardless of how the employer may otherwise define “full-time’ employment).

The rules for identifying full-time employees are very complicated as is the corresponding reporting associated with the employer shared responsibility provisions.

Get a jump start on the employer shared responsibility reporting by attending our all-new webinar when our presenter, a skilled employee benefits attorney, will walk you through the new IRS forms and give you tips for ensure that you’re correctly calculating your ALE status ahead of 2016 reporting deadlines.
