Impact of Health Care Reform Law on Your Business: A Status Update
The official rollout of the new health care law created more questions for employers throughout the country. Requirements under the Affordable Care Act have already taken effect, with many more mandates coming on January 1, 2014. As rumors of delayed deadlines circulate in Washington's corridors, businesses and employees need some answers.
As a benefit of your Women in Manufacturing membership, we invite you to participate in a FREE webinar on the Affordable Care Act on Friday, November 15 at 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time. John Guzik and Omar Nashashibi of The Franklin Partnership, a Washington, D.C.-based lobbying and government consulting firm, will provide an update on the law and the impact it is already having on small and mid-size employers. This webinar is your chance to hear directly from Washington about the health care law.
