Event Details

Tuesday, September 26, 2023
12:00 – 1:00 pm, Central

Speaker: Wes Covert, Partner at Laner Muchin

The Affordable Care Act’s Employer Shared Responsibility Mandate (“Mandate”) was introduced in 2014 and employers have adjusted their health plan eligibility and payroll processes accordingly. However, due to increased enforcement of the Mandate by the IRS and the significant penalties related to non-compliance, employers would be prudent to review their policies and practices related to complying with the Mandate. This webinar will review the Mandate’s rules related to determining full-time employees, highlight issues related to reporting offers of coverage, and responding to IRS enforcement letters.

As a result of this presentation, attendees will:

  • Understand which Hours of Service to count toward determining an employee’s full-time status for purposes of the Mandate
  • Understand how to determine an employee’s full-time status using the Look-Back Measurement Method
  • Recognize certain reporting “red flags” that may lead to an IRS enforcement letter
  • Know how to respond to an IRS enforcement letter

Education Certificates: N/A
