A Saturday afternoon telephone call from a frantic relative recently reminded me that some employers are still struggling to complete the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) forms required for Affordable Care Act (ACA) reporting.
One of the last pieces of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) to be implemented, and perhaps one of the most controversial, is the 40 percent excise tax on high-cost health plans, often referred to as the “Cadillac Tax”.
The U.S. District Court for the Western District of Wisconsin has rejected a challenge by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) alleging that a company’s wellness program violated the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
The latest developments in “wellness law” were highlighted by Barbara Zabawa, attorney and founder of the Center of Health Law Equity, LLC, at The Alliance Learning Circle on “Wellness Success in the workplace” at Monona Terrace on Jan. 21.
Two proposals have been introduced recently that would make changes to the current workers’ compensation program in Wisconsin.
Employers should start preparing now to be ready for Affordable Care Act (ACA) reporting deadlines, with the first deadline on Jan. 31, 2016 for health benefit coverage provided in 2015.
