Affordable Care Act
In January 2014, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) also referred to as Obamacare will be implemented for all companies including all temporary staffing agencies. This will have an effect on everyone and I want you to know I’m keeping up on educating myself to serve you my valued customers.
Superior Staffing is a member of the American Staffing Association (ASA) who have been conducting an ongoing series of seminars related to ACA. I’ve been attending these along with other information sessions and programs to increase my understanding of the new health care law and its upcoming effect on all of us.
These seminars have revealed that many aspects of the program are still being defined. The general counsel for the American Staffing Association has direct access to the people who actually wrote the bill. This gentleman is than able to provide members of the ASA important information. We’ve learned among other things that ACA Compliance issues will be monitored by the IRS for all companies including arrangements between staffing companies and their customers. There is a wide spectrum of issues some clearer than others at this time including anti-abuse rules strongly in place being fined tuned by the government. It’s my responsibility to continue to fully educate myself to protect your interests in following this closely monitored law.
The cost of this program to us and our customers has not yet been calculated. Over the next few weeks we will be running an analysis to estimate what these cost may be. I will be in contact with you to set up a meeting to discuss the findings of the analysis.
Superior Staffing values our partnerships with our customers and challenges will be met successfully by working together. I’ll keep you updated as new information and data is revealed in my usual proactive way.
