Affordable Care Act Questions Answered During AGC Webinar

AGC recently hosted a webinar to educate construction contractors on the latest regulations that implement the employer mandates of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The webinar, Affordable Care Act Update for Construction Employers, is a follow-up to AGC’s 2013 webinar series, The Affordable Care Act: The Impact of Health Care Reform on Your Construction Business. A recording of the webinar is available in the AGC Bookstore.

During the webinar, Jack Widman, Mark Levengood and Jennifer Abrams, attorneys and employee benefits specialists with the law firm of Susanin Widman & Brennan, P.C, shared information to help construction contractors avoid the legal pitfalls of compliance with the complex law. The attorneys provided much-needed clarifications of the employer mandate requirements, details of the transition relief provided by the employer mandate final regulations, details of the new employer reporting requirements, clarification of the 90-day waiting period limitations, and more.

Much of the webinar focused on the application of the law to seasonal workers and employers who contribute to multi-employer health plans – a topic specifically of interest to construction employers that operate on a union basis. AGC Director of Congressional Relations Jim Young added to the discussion by sharing information about AGC’s advocacy efforts with regard to seasonal workers and multi-employer health plans.

The webinar was pre-approved for 1.5 general recertification credits by the HR Certification Institute (HRCI), the internationally recognized leader in human resource certification.
