Employer Obligation to Notify Employees Regarding Health Care Marketplace

A notice has been sent to Contributing Employers of the Ironworkers Local 11 Welfare Fund regarding an employers obligation to notify employees about the health care marketplace.

The Affordable Care Act amended the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) to add Section 18B, which requires employers to provide a Notice entitled “New Health Insurance Marketplace Coverage Options and Your Health Coverage” to current employees no later than October 1, 2013. In addition, employers must also provide the Notice to new employees hired after that date within 14 days of their hire. The Notice is designed to inform employees of the existence of the Marketplace (previously called the “Exchange”) and the effect of this new coverage option on their existing employment coverage.
