Affordable Care Act: How to classify employees

By Jay Starkman 

Under the Affordable Care Act, the rules for classifying employees, or calculating the number of hours worked is no easy task. To avoid errors and costly penalties, employers must know exactly how to define a full-time employee vs. a part-time worker - and everything in between.

Hours of service = each hour an employee is paid or entitled to be paid for actual hours worked or paid leave (including vacation, holiday, illness, disability, layoff, jury duty, and military leave).


Wellness Programs and the Affordable Care Act

The primary goal of corporate wellness programs is for employees to become healthier. Healthier employees spend less for medical care - doctors, hospitals and prescription drugs – and that helps to reduce health insurance costs for employers.
