Where to start?

The sweeping 20,000-page Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act created a compliance and reporting challenge for almost every employer – then later revisions further complicated the picture. Does it apply to my company? How do I determine which employees might be eligible for coverage? What reporting requirements do I have? If I don’t do everything correctly, what penalties could there be? You’re not alone in wondering. That’s why AGH’s human resource and payroll professionals have put together this guide to give you some of the basics of ACA reporting.
