As an Employer, are you complying with ACA’s Non-Discrimination Rules?

The non-discrimination rules, under the Affordable Care Act’s (ACA), took effect Oct. 16. These new rules, which apply to specific employers, require posting of specific notices plus require addressing limited English proficiency. One of the keys here is that some of these posted statements must be written in languages other than English.  The attached link to a SHRM article provides a summary on this issue.  At a minimum, employers should ensure that benefit design decisions made by the employer in its role as a plan settlor are adequately and appropriately documented. As with compliance on any non-discrimination rules, employers should seek the advice of experienced employment attorneys to address the application of these rules and for other preventative measures.
