Benefits and Compensation Alert
- IRS enforcement of the Employer Mandate is in full swing. Penalty assessment notices for 2016 are expected this fall.
- Employers should be prepared to respond quickly if a penalty assessment notice (Letter 226‐J) is received.
- Attempts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (the “ACA”) have failed, and whatever the outcome of this November’s election, it now appears that the law is here to stay.
- One significant lawsuit remains pending at this time; if successful, it would invalidate portions of the ACA designed to protect individuals with pre‐existing conditions.
