PPACA Hourly Threshold: Strategies for Managing Coverage Eligibility of Part-Time Workers in Retail, Hospitality and Health Care
The Attendance on Demand PPACA Hourly Threshold: Strategies for Managing Coverage Eligibility of Part-Time Workers in Retail, Hospitality and Health Care white paper discusses service industries such as retail, hospitality and health care that employ large part-time and low-wage populations are likely to experience increased financial impact when the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) goes into full effect next year. Consequently, employers in these industries are looking to manage worker eligibility with strategies that reduce the number of employees that meet PPACA's "hourly threshold" of 30 or more hours per week in a given month. This is a viable strategy for mitigating coverage costs but one that demands an airtight time and attendance process to ensure the organization is meeting its Shared Responsibility obligations.
PPACA Shared Responsibility: Healthcare Reform Compliance
The Attendance on Demand PPACA Shared Responsibility: Healthcare Reform Compliance white paper discusses the impact of healthcare reform. Employers must prepare for their new obligations and responsibilities under PPACA. A primary challenge for employers is determining which employees are considered full-time under the Act and must be offered coverage. This paper examines the expanded "determination process" the IRS suggests for four different types of employees. A time and attendance system can ease the process, providing data for accurate decision-making and supporting the organization's due diligence.
PPACA and Small Business: Taking Advantage of Health Care Tax Credits
The Attendance on Demand Taking Advantage of Health Care Tax Credits white paper discusses the need for employers to prepare for the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) mandates. Small businesses struggle to determine the impact PPACA will have on their operation. This white paper examines eligibility criteria for PPACA tax credits and how a time and attendance system can ease the eligibility determination process.
ESS Mobile from Attendance on Demand was recognized in the Hot Technology Product category for innovation. Different types of employees have different time tracking needs. ESS Mobile is a single app that presents different options to different employees based on employee permissions.
