Healthcare reform alert: Obama administration suspends looming deadline for distribution of insurance exchange notices to employees
NYSA
On Jan. 24, the Obama administration issued new guidance concerning implementation of the health care reform law, the Affordable Care Act. Critically, the guidance suspends until further notice the March 1, 2013, deadline for nearly all staffing firms and other employers — regardless of size — to distribute to employees certain notices of the state-based (or federal-facilitated) health insurance exchanges created under the ACA. This requirement will likely apply even to part-time or temporary employees on assignment.

What's interesting, however, is that a combined 26 percent of respondents do it some of the time, rarely, or not at all. That's a decent chunk of the industry specifically swinging the opposite way of the majority.
