The Future of Employer Healthcare under the Affordable Care Act

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) is one of the most significant pieces of legislation in decades and impacts both businesses and individuals. Employers must determine if they are covered by the ACA and take proactive steps to comply with its extensive mandates. This FREE webinar, presented by James P. Anelli, Esq. and Neil H. Ekblom, Esq. of LeClairRyan, is designed to help you better understand what is coming and what options exist for your employer.

It is important that employers be well-versed on health care reform legislation. In order to understand the potential penalties that may be assessed if employees go obtain coverage through a health insurance exchange HR needs to be diligent from the onset.
