Affordable Care Act Notice Requirement

There is no doubt that your organization has heard a lot about the Affordable Care Act in the last few months. But did you know that the Act requires California employers to notify all employees about the existence of Covered California (California’s new insurance marketplace) and the ability for employees to purchase health insurance through this new marketplace?

Employers must provide the required notice to all current employees by October 1.

If you have any questions or you are not sure whether your organization is required to provide this notice, contact your HR representative or employment counsel.
