Employer Mandates and New Penalties Under PPACA

By August 21, 2010 Health

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce has released a white paper to serve as a guide for the business community on understanding and complying with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (“PPACA”). This paper, Critical Employer Issues in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, identifies several taxes and penalties that can be levied against employers if they are unable to provide minimum health care coverage levels that have yet to be determined. While this paper is an attempt to shed light on pieces of the new law, it is not intended to be a substitute for the legal counsel, benefits consultants or in-depth analysis that individual businesses will need to ensure compliance.
