Federal agencies have jointly released new regulations implementing the employer mandate under health care reform. Although the compliance delay for smaller employers has received the most attention, there are 200+ pages of new rules addressing a wide variety of topics.

Please join us on March 31st as HUB’s Compliance and Leadership Teams review what the new rules mean to the restaurant industry, to your compliance obligations and most importantly, to your business strategy.

 Planned topics for our program include:
- New delay: A one-year delay for restaurants with 50-99 full-time employees. We’ll help you understand how to certify that you qualify for the delay to 2016.
- What’s required in 2015?: How will the coverage mandate impact restaurants with 100 or more full-time employees starting in 2015?
- Transition rule for larger restaurants: What does the new 70% "coverage offer" threshold mean for 2015? (We’ll explain strategies to avoid a $2,000 per full-time employee penalty.)
- Variable hour employment update: The regulations reaffirm the optional look-back measurement period for determining full-time employee status - something that offers key advantages to restaurant employers.
- Overview of employee categories: How will the mandate affect seasonal and other specialty employees, particularly for crediting service hours.
- Affordability safe harbors: A review of what restaurants need to know about plan cost and pricing.
- When does the mandate start?: Generally, restaurants will have until their renewal plan date in 2015 versus January 1, 2015. We’ll outline the conditions necessary for qualifying for the plan year date.
- Waiting Periods: Although final rules have been issued that limit waiting periods to a 90 day maximum - new exceptions continue to allow plan design opportunities.
- Optimizing dependent coverage as a business strategy.
