Get Ready to Notify Your Employees!

Tomorrow, Friday, March 1, 2013, was the date that all businesses were required under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act to provide written notification to their employees on the availability of individual health insurance exchanges, but the U.S. Department of Labor recently issued a guidance document delaying the implementation of this provision of the law. These insurance exchanges have been established under the health care law to provide a forum for individuals and small businesses to choose the coverage that best fits their needs.

Although this employer mandate has been delayed until at least Summer 2013, it is still timely for all sign companies to consult with their human resources and legal experts now and start preparing to provide written notification to their employees on this ever-changing and complicated issue.  Register to attend ISA's webinar on The Affordable Care Act and Your Business: What You Need to Know at 2:00 p.m. EST on March 14, and use these helpful links your employees as much information as possible about these insurance exchanges:
