Date:November 4, 2013 at 12:00 - 1:00 PM ET
Presenters: Dee Williams, Founder & CEO (Identifize Consulting)
With the 2015 launch of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) also known as Obama Care, employers are strategizing on how they can cut employee hours and minimize their staff and/or avoid the 50-employee threshold. This has been an ongoing discussion because there has been a crackdown on worker misclassification at both the state and federal levels. However, many employers are consulting with their legal counsel to find ways of avoiding the costs that are associated with the new mandate.
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act Employer Mandate states — There is a federal requirement that companies with 50 or more employees must provide health insurance coverage to all employees or pay a penalty of $2000 per employee (after an exemption for the first 30 employees). This mandate has been delayed one year to Jan. 1, 2015 and is intended to keep companies from "dumping" employees into public coverage.
Critics of the ACA claim that the mandate on employers to provide health benefits will discourage companies from adding staff, and many are looking at utilizing contractors who are W2 employees of a third-party provider (recruiter or a contract staffing back-office). That way, contractors can work as many hours as they need to because they will be counted as an employee of the third-party firm, not your organization. But looking at this option, how will companies maintain their culture when a large portion of their staff will be contractors?
This webinar will focus on:
- The ins and outs of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and how it may impact your recruiting organization.
- Strategies that you can put in place today to integrate Independent Contractors and Temporary Workers into your organization’s culture.
- Maintaining a positive internal employee culture while enhancing your employer brand for contractors and temporary workers.
- 5 Keys to developing the right partnership with your third-party recruitment firm.
