Workforce Quotes ADP Expert About ACA Compliance

Workforce has posted an article titled “Despite Repeal Efforts, ACA Compliance Moves Forward” that extensively quotes ADP SME Ellen Feeney, vice president, Counsel, Global Compliance, on the need for compliance with the current provisions of the Affordable Care Act while the incoming administration evaluates its next steps regarding the law. “Given the Republican sweep in the White House, Senate and House of Representatives, the new makeup of our government represents a potentially significant change not just for ACA, but for tax policy, Fair Labor Standards Act, pay equity and more,” [Feeney] said in an email. “First and foremost, it’s important to focus on facts vs. speculation. Change won’t happen overnight. The Affordable Care Act is the law, and will remain so until it’s not. Ten million people are getting subsidies through the marketplaces and 20 million total are insured through the public marketplaces. A wholesale replacement of the Affordable Care Act would require congressional action and would take time.” Read the entire article at Workforce. Share this:Click to email...

Post-Election Possibilities: Changes to HR and Tax Compliance You May See

Many employers are still grappling with new compliance challenges enacted in recent years, and unresolved legislative priorities from past years may be brought to the forefront in the critical first year of the new administration. That begs the question – What should employers expect in this post-election environment? Which policy issues are likely to be considered and how might they affect employers? We reached out to ADP experts Ellen Feeney, Vice President and Counsel – Global Compliance, and Pete Isberg, Vice President, Government Relations, to ask them what they think employers can expect in the upcoming year. The Affordable Care Act was discussed at length in this past election cycle. What are some possible changes employers can expect? Ellen: While President-elect Trump campaigned on the promise that he’d repeal and replace the ACA, his stance has shifted somewhat post-election, and he seems open to the possibility of keeping some parts of the law. At this point, the ACA is tightly woven into our health care system as twenty million...

By Mary Schafer Help Quell Calls and Confusion with Effective Communications Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), Applicable Large Employers (ALEs) with 50 or more full-time, including full-time equivalent employees, are subject to the employer shared responsibility provision and related IRS reporting requirements.
