As employers continue to deal with the impacts of Affordable Care Act implementation, and the numerous changes it has already brought to the landscape, it is essential that they understand what they must do to ensure compliance with employer mandates and avoid any potential penalties. To help employers account for these unprecedented changes to workforce planning and management, Equifax Workforce Solutions, the company behind the groundbreaking Affordable Care Act Management Platform, will share its industry-leading insight and expertise in two engaging webcasts:
"ACA Look-Back Periods & Reporting"
To successfully prepare for the impact of ACA in 2015, organizations should already have the infrastructure in place to administer the legislation, prepare necessary information for IRS reporting and calculate look-back or measurement periods for each employee. However, given the different types of employees, such as variable-hour, temporary, part-time and seasonal, determining eligibility and collecting data for reports can be perplexing, and organizations simply can't afford to make a mistake. During this webinar, Kristin Lewis, director of Product Management, Workforce Analytics for Equifax Workforce Solutions, and Tom Dowling, partner, Stinson Leonard Street, will address the top three areas of ACA management that can lead to compliance risks: calculating look-back periods to determine eligibility, reporting to the IRS and ensuring that the coverage offered is affordable.

"ACA: Preparing Your Staffing Company for 2015"
The actions that staffing companies take in 2014 will determine the penalties they could face in 2015 – and have a significant impact on their profit margins. But as organizations calculate look-back periods for each employee, challenges like breaks-in-service and uncertainty about workloads make the process more difficult. During this insightful webinar, Lewis and Dowling team up once again for a panel discussion moderated by Andrew Braswell, research analyst for Staffing Industry Analysts. Attendees of this webinar will learn what they should be doing now to prepare for the ACA, how look-back periods work and the importance of tracking them, how to determine the ACA's impact on profit margins and best practices for managing the legislation.
