ACA Uncertainty: What's an Employer to Do?

Tuesday, March 14, 2017

It’s no surprise that there is uncertainty ahead for the Affordable Care Act. Many employers are wondering what they should do?

Attend our March Alliance Learning Circle to learn from John Barlament, partner at Quarles & Brady on the latest happenings and discussions in Congress on their plans to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.

The event covers:

  • An update on the latest plan to repeal the Affordable Care Act
  • What employers should continue to monitor and report?
  • Things employers no longer need to worry about
  • If there will be a tax employers should plan for

John Barlament, Partner, Quarles & Brady

John Barlament is the Chair of the Quarles & Brady Data Privacy & Security industry team. He is an author of one of the country's leading manuals on the HIPAA privacy and security rules, HIPAA Portability, Privacy & Security (Thomson Reuters / EBIA), as well as other seminal publications including A Primer on Online Privacy (Wisconsin Lawyer magazine) and International Guide to Privacy (American Bar Association).

John is recognized as a national leader in this emerging and constantly changing area of law. He has been quoted in leading publications including The Wall Street Journal, and interviewed by national media including National Public Radio, about privacy, data breach and cybersecurity matters.

For multi-employer plans, John is one of the few attorneys in the country who has limited his practice to representing the plans and their trustees on a "sole counsel" basis. That is, in order to ensure consistency in advice among multiemployer plan clients, John does not represent "management trustees" or "labor trustees" -- instead, he represents both, with no bias towards either side.

John prides himself on staying abreast of state-of-the-art industry practices, and translating complex and intersecting areas of law into practical, plain-English advice -- all to help clients efficiently and effectively meet challenges arising these rapidly changing areas of law.
