The ONA is getting questions from some members about the impact of the Affordable Care Act (known colloquially as ObamaCare) on Ohio businesses, particularly newspapers.
Following are some resources to help you.
- First, click here for a link to the Ohio Department of Insurance’s Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page on federal health care reform.
- Second, we have details on upcoming, free webinars held by the U.S. Small Business Administration.
- Third, we are providing information from SS&G, our Columbus accounting firm, on mandatory employee notice requirements that must be completed by Oct. 1.
As detailed in the FAQ above, the important thing to remember is that all employers must give certain notices to new hires and current employees about the law and, if the employer has 50 or more employees, must provide qualified health care coverage or pay a penalty. For more information on your responsibilities as an employer, see the links above or contact your human resources counsel.
