The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) has created new obligations. However, many employers must make decisions that will have a direct impact on the healthcare plans they will be offering. The requirements of the ACA are extremely complex, and its legal implications extend well beyond Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) and the Internal Revenue Code.
The Littler Healthcare Reform Consulting Group is here to help. Our group comprises some of our most experienced employee benefits attorneys. Littler is situated to provide real-world legal advice, not only with respect to healthcare plan compliance but also in regard to risks arising under the ACA and other areas of law, such as the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), Title VII, whistleblower statutes and traditional labor.
Employers can use Littler’s Healthcare Reform Advisor, an innovative online system, to determine whether they may be at risk of having to pay a penalty under the ACA’s “pay or play” mandate. For those who complete the online evaluation, our attorneys also offer a brief complimentary consultation to discuss the results and potential risks for penalties under the ACA.
