The Affordable Health Care Act – What The Small Business Owner Needs To Know

usaIf you are a small business owner, then you need to know how the  Affordable Health Care Act / Obamacare will impact your operations, your business resources, and workforce management.

The Concern

Many small businesses assume that if they have less than 50 employees, then they are under the radar for compliance, but that could be a problem because they also misunderstand how the number of employees is calculated under the law.  This is particularly common when dealing with part-time employees, who may drift in and out of eligibility status every pay period based on average hours worked  in that period.  The same applies if a company knows that it has 50 employees and is subject to the employer shared responsibility rules, but if included in the fifty is the hiring of “variable employees” or employees with irregular schedules, then complications may lead to expensive impact with ObamaCare determinations because these employees may also switch in and out of eligibility based on their average hours during each testing period, and could cause the total count to go over or under fifty.
