HR professionals cannot make tough company decisions regarding the Affordable Care Act (ACA) alone. As a result, many are guiding construction company owners and executives through the decision-making process to minimize the impact of the ACA on business operations. AGC’s upcoming webinar series, The Affordable Care Act: The Impact of Health Care Reform on Your Construction Business, will provide those with a seat at the table the information necessary to make critical business decisions that will affect the company for years to come. The webinars will be held on Feb. 5, 7 and 12. Each webinar will be held from 2:00-3:30 p.m. ET. Registration for all three days is just $99 for AGC members.
This webinar series will provide answers to such questions as:
- How will health care reform affect our bottom line?
- Should we pay the tax penalty or provide health care coverage? Which is cheaper? Which is better?
- If we provide coverage, how much will insurance costs increase?
- Should we consider reducing employee hours to 30 hours per week?
- How will all of this affect our company in the long run?
On day one of the webinar, there will be an overview of all the key implementation dates of the ACA, the overall impact of the law on health plans, and the impact of the individual mandate on business – an often disregarded issue for employers.
Day two will cover “Play or Pay” – the employer mandate provision that raises the most questions for employers. Small businesses and those with seasonal employees will especially benefit from learning the process for determining if a company must comply with the mandate. Vital tax and payroll issues will also be discussed.
For those who decide to “play”, on day three, participants will get an inside look at the future of the insurance marketplace, including how insurance providers are adapting their plans and cost structures as a result of the new requirements, as well as techniques to use when shopping around for health insurance plans.
AGC is planning a separate event, as part of the 2013 HR Professionals Conference, specifically for HR professionals who need to dig deeper into the compliance issues of the Affordable Care Act. Details will be available soon.
Now is the time to take action by creating a strategy to address these critical issues. For more information or to register, please visit the AGC website.
