The Affordable Care Act (ACA) imposes a penalty on applicable large employers (ALEs) that do not offer minimum essential coverage to full-time employees and their dependents. ALEs that offer this coverage may still be liable for a penalty if the coverage is unaffordable or does not provide minimum value. The ACA’s employer mandate provision is often referred to as the “employer shared responsibility” or “pay or play” rules.
On Feb. 10, 2014, the U.S. Treasury Department released final regulations implementing the ACA’s employer shared responsibility provisions. The regulations took effect on Feb. 12, 2014.
