The Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires all employers that are subject to the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”) to provide written notice of the health insurance “Marketplace” to all employees on or before October 1, 2013. The notice must be provided even if the employer will not have to provide coverage under the ACA.
Employers are generally subject to the FLSA if they are engaged in interstate commerce or have an annual business volume of at least $500,000. If your business is covered by the FLSA and you have not yet sent the Marketplace Notice, make sure you do so no later than October 1st. A model notice can be obtained from the Department of Labor’s website.
