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.

Get your pens and paper ready because this is one virtual webinar that you don’t want to miss!

  4. 4. The Ins And Outs Of The Affordable Care Act (ACA) And How It May Impact Your Recruiting Organization
  5. 5. The Ins And Outs Of The Affordable Care Act (ACA) And How It May Impact Your Recruiting Organization • The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), commonly called the Affordable Care Act (ACA) or "Obamacare“ was signed into law on March 23rd 2010. • States cannot be forced to participate in the ACA's Medicaid expansion under penalty of losing their current Medicaid funding (as of September 2013, 25 states and the District of Columbia have adopted the Medicaid expansion.) • Pre-existing Conditions — An ongoing or past health problem. Currently insurers can use pre-existing conditions to deny or restrict coverage, or charge more. Those practices will be barred by federal law starting Jan. 1, 2014, and insurers will have to accept all applicants (excluding tobacco use).
  6. 6. The Ins And Outs Of The Affordable Care Act (ACA) And How It May Impact Your Recruiting Organization • Individual Mandate - requires all individuals not covered by an employer sponsored health plan, Medicaid, Medicare or other public insurance programs to secure an approved private-insurance policy or pay a penalty, unless the applicable individual has a financial hardship or is a member of a recognized religious sect exempted by the Internal Revenue Service, effective January 1, 2014. How the ObamaCare Employer Mandate Will Affect Individuals If an individual works for a company that doesn't currently provide health insurance to their full-time workers and they work over 28 hours a week they are at the highest risk of having a negative impact from the provision. Although the "mandate" is meant to help provide this demographic insurance it has backfired with some of America's largest employers and ironically many government institutions. While only a small portion of the companies affected have responded by cutting hours, the American's affected is staggeringly high (6M+).
  7. 7. The Ins And Outs Of The Affordable Care Act (ACA) And How It May Impact Your Recruiting Organization How to Know if Your Coverage is Affordable If an employee's share of the premium costs for employee-only coverage (not the entire family) is more than 9.5% of their yearly household income, the coverage is not considered affordable. Since you typically won't know your employee's household income, you can generally avoid a Shared Responsibility Payment for an employee if the employee's share of the premium for employee-only coverage doesn't exceed 9.5% of their wages for that year as reported on the employee’s W-2 form. • Employer Mandate - requires all businesses with over 50 full-time equivalent (FTE) employees provide health insurance for their full-time employees, or pay a per month "Employer Shared Responsibility Payment" on their federal tax return. Delayed one year to January 1, 2015. The annual employer mandate fee (officially called an Employer Shared Responsibility Payment) is a per employee fee. The annual fee is $2,000 per employee if insurance isn't offered (the first 30 full-time employees are exempt). The annual fee is $3,000 per employee if coverage is unaffordable or doesn't provide minimum value and the employee qualifies for premium savings on the Marketplace.
  8. 8. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) And How It May Impact Your Recruiting Organization The Truth About Who The Employer Mandate Affects 96% of all firms in the United States - or 5.8 million out of 6 million total firms - have under 50 employees and Will not Be Penalized for choosing not to provide health coverage to their employees. 96% of those firms already cover full time workers. That means less than .2% of small businesses (10k out of 6 million) will actually have to provide insurance to full-time employees or pay the shared responsibility fee due to ObamaCare. Please Note: Employers with under 50 full-time equivalent employees almost universally benefit from ObamaCare because if a small business has 25 or less full-time employees they can apply for tax breaks of up to 50% (35% for non-profits) of their contribution of their employees premiums starting in 2014. Insurance must be purchased on the Affordable Insurance Exchange for at least two years.
  9. 9. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) And How It May Impact Your Recruiting Organization • Many employees are holding on to employment for health insurance purposes. With the implementation of ACA, it’s a great possibility that we will see an influx of available job opportunities (retirees) and an influx of independent contract workers. • Increase in staffing for the HIT and Healthcare industries. • Many employers are shifting temporary workers hours to fewer than 30 hours per week.
