Affordable Care Act Poster

Affordable Care Act Poster: Employers must provide the notice to each employee, regardless of plan enrollment status or part-time or full-time status. Every employer is required to provide notices.

Businesses must comply with the Affordable Care Act (ACA) requirement to notify their employees of healthcare coverage options through the Health Insurance Marketplace ("Exchange") no later than 10/1/2013. Employers who fail to post the required notice could be potentially open to themselves up to claims by the employees who suffer damages as a result of such failure.

By October 1, 2013, all employers covered by the Fair Labor Standards Act are required to provide current employees with the notice. Starting October 1, 2013, each new hire must receive the notice within 14 days of the employee’s start date. In 2014, providing the notice within that time fulfills the Department of Labor’s (DOL) compliance requirement.
