March Webinar: Getting Ready for 2014: Part 2
The IRS has given us lengthy proposed regulations on the "play or pay" penalty (and how to avoid it) under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Beginning in 2014, employers with 50 or more full-time employees (or full-time equivalent employees) will have to either offer health coverage that meets government requirements to their full-time employees or pay one of two penalty taxes. As 2014 approaches, employers must decide how best to handle this new obligation.
Calculating the potential "play or pay" penalties can be complicated. In this 90-minute webinar, we'll discuss in detail how the penalties are calculated and when and how employers will pay them. (This webinar builds on information provided in our Feb. 12 webinar. To review the slides for that presentation, click here.) If you're an employer with 50 or more employees, you won't want to miss this informative, intermediate-level webinar.
The presentation slides will be posted at www.ubabenefits.com the day before the webinar.
