Affordable Care Act: Notice To Employees Delayed Until 2015

In a recent statement from the U.S. Department of the Treasury, they announced the delay of the ACA.


"Over the past several months, the Administration has been engaging in a dialogue with businesses - many of which already provide health coverage for their workers - about the new employer and insurer reporting requirements under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). We have heard concerns about the complexity of the requirements and the need for more time to implement them effectively.  We recognize that the vast majority of businesses that will need to do this reporting already provide health insurance to their workers, and we want to make sure it is easy for others to do so.

The Administration is announcing that it will provide an additional year before the ACA mandatory employer and insurer reporting requirements begin.  This is designed to meet two goals. First, it will allow us to consider ways to simplify the new reporting requirements consistent with the law.  Second, it will provide time to adapt health coverage and reporting systems while employers are moving toward making health coverage affordable and accessible for their employees."

Rhode Island  Is Yet Another State To "Ban The Box" For Private Employers 
Rhode IslandThe Governor of Rhode Island recently signed a law to prohibit employers from asking job applicants about their criminal conviction history until the first interview. In "banning the box" for private employers, Rhode Island joins Hawaii, Massachusetts, and Minnesota, as well as the cities of Seattle, Washington; Buffalo, New York; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Newark, New Jersey.


Additionally, many more jurisdictions have banned the box for public employers and public contractors, and still more - including the U.S. Congress - have some form of ban-the-box legislation pending. Unless exempted, employers located within Rhode Island should refrain from asking questions relating to convictions - in a written job application or otherwise - until the first interview.

4 Essential Steps Required To Be In Compliance With FCRA Guidelines
fcra compliance

The employers need to understand Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) before conducting background checks on existing employees or applicants for a new job offer. With the rise in incidents relating to workplace crime or unwanted behavior, employers are getting concerned about obtaining background verification reports before hiring any employee.


FCRA's main agenda is to strike a balance between employer's requirement and employee's privacy by regulating the amount of information that can be obtained by the employer through background checks. Well-informed hiring decisions are necessary for every employer but being in compliance with the law is also important.
