President Obama’s re-election in November 2012 appears to have secured
the future of the ACA, making mandatory compliance a near certainty for U.S.
employers. As a result, many employers are quickly moving beyond a “wait and
see” approach and rethinking their approach to employee healthcare coverage.
With major ACA penalties taking effect in 2015, HR and payroll departments are
working to develop strategies and update systems to help ensure compliance and
manage potential cost impact.
