Employers are required to notify employees of their right to purchase insurance from a state insurance exchange. The initial deadline was March 1, 2013; however, the Department of Labor (DOL) delayed the deadline to October 1, 2013. Beginning in 2014, employers must provide notice to new employees within 14 days of the employee's start date.
