These are both very big changes for employers with more than 50 employees.
First, one change that is not yet final but advanced on Friday would increase the hourly work requirement from 30/week to 40/week to determine “full-time”. See here for more. That is a very big deal for small businesses trying to grasp measurement periods and who would be eligible for coverage and what would trigger a penalty. Watch this one…
Next, and I can’t believe this one, the Mandate for 50+ employers has been delayed another full year. Yes, just like that, to 1/1/16. More here.
We’ll keep you posted if there is more. Pretty safe bet it won’t be today!
