Employer Penalties – Affordability Safe Harbors

Beginning in 2014, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) imposes “pay or play” requirements on large employers. Under these “pay or play” requirements, large employers that do not offer health coverage to their full-time employees and their dependents, or that offer coverage that is either unaffordable or does not provide minimum value, may be subject to a penalty. This penalty is also referred to as a “shared responsibility payment.”
