the affordable care act raises importance of time and ... - darden restaurants dish sign in
Starting from January 2014, when most of the main provisions of the Affordable Care Act come into effect, organizations of more than 50 workers will be required to provide health insurance to employees who work more than 30 hours a week
Companies that violate the law will be fined $3,000.
With the end of the election, and with all signs of health care reform to take place, employers are already adjusting labor management policies for these changes.
The biggest decision the employer faces is to identify the increased medical expenses and then decide how to deal with these increases.
In the hotel and retail industry, a favorable solution is to increase the number of employees while reducing the working hours of each employee. In fact, Bert P.
The general manager of Strategic Resources Group, Flickr Inger III, told the New York Times that this is a trend that has emerged over the past 20 years, thanks to "many major retailers from 70 to 80%
At least 70% of the time.
Time for the whole industry.
"Previously, due to the overtime compensation section of FLSA, the employer focused on postponing the employee's work week to less than 40 hours.
They will now seek less than 30 hours.
One such organization that takes action in this area is the Darton restaurant company.
The parent company of restaurants such as Olive Garden, Red Lobster and long Horn Steak House.
No more full service in Darton
Specific restaurants in four country markets arrange working hours for employees.
Darden called it a "test" to "address the cost impact of health care reform on [our] business ".
"While many of the norms of the Affordable Care Act are still vague or yet to be determined, it is clear that implementation will be based primarily on the hours of work of employees.
In this regard, the reform is similar to the Fair Labor Standards Act and its provisions on wages and working hours.
Just as the employer uses the time and attendance system to comply with the FLSA, the employer will also do so in the Affordable Care Act.
Just as employers use the scheduling functions of these systems to control and project wage costs, employers do the same for health care costs.
