This session will present strategies for avoiding common mistakes and developing a workforce management strategy that optimizes efficiency, while actively managing a variable-hour and seasonal workforce to meet ACA compliance obligations. 

Variable-hour industries will bear a significant financial impact as a result of the Affordable Care Act due to the large number of part-time workers. Many businesses want to minimize this impact with strategies that reduce the number of employees meeting ACA's definition of full time. This session will help  you:

  • Understand key aspects of the employer mandate and any regulatory changes.
  • Avoid common mistakes with ACA measurements.
  • Understand seasonal rules.
  • Manage changes in employee status.
  • Apply strategies to limit administrative impact of ACA regulations.
  • Effectively manage workforce to reduce potential liability.
