Where ERISA and the Affordable Care Act Collide, as appeared in Law360December 5, 2013
Adam Solander, an Associate in the Health Care and Life Sciences practice, in the Washington, DC, office, wrote an article titled "Where ERISA and the Affordable Care Act Collide."
Following is an excerpt:
In July 2013, the Obama administration announced a delay of the employer mandate provision of the Affordable Care Act for one year (i.e., the employer mandate). While back in July a one-year delay seemed like an eternity, the reality is that given the way in which most employers will determine whether an employee is classified as full-time, and therefore is eligible for coverage, as a practical matter, in very short order employers may be forced to make staffing decisions that could expose them to liability. This article will examine some of the risks associated with employer staffing decisions and how those risks maybe mitigated.
