We recommend this recent post on the Hospitality Labor and Employment Law blog: “IRS Releases Proposed Rules on Employer's Information Reporting Requirements Under the Employer Mandate of the Affordable Care Act,” by Kara Maciel, Adam Solander, and Brandon Ge, our colleagues at Epstein Becker Green.
Following is an excerpt:
On September 5, 2013, the Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) released two proposed rules to implement important reporting requirements under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (“ACA”), which will help determine penalties under the Employer Mandate and should be of great importance to hospitality employers.
One rule would require information reporting by insurers, self-insuring employers, and other parties that provide health coverage (“minimum essential coverage”). The other rule would require employers that are subject to the employer mandate to report information to the IRS and employees regarding the minimum essential coverage they offer their full-time employees. There will be public hearings to discuss the rules on November 18 (for the proposed rule on large employer reporting) and 19 (for the proposed rule on minimum essential coverage reporting). Affected entities also have an opportunity to comment, with comments due for both rules on November 8, 2013.
