Employers: Here’s a Mid-Year Affordable Care Act Refresher

 

As an employer, the size and structure of your workforce helps determine which parts of the health care law apply to your business. Work forces typically fluctuate, so it’s important to annually determine the size of your workforce.

The number of employees you have during the current year determines whether your business is an applicable large employer for the following year. Applicable large employers are generally those with 50 or more full-time employees, including full-time equivalents. Employers with fewer than 50 full-time employees, including full-time equivalents, are not applicable large employers.
