Deadlines for employers to decide whether they will "pay or play" with the provisions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) are quickly approaching and companies are tasked with navigating the complex legislation. As ACA requirements will undoubtedly evolve, accurate tracking of employee eligibility, cost and risk modeling, and ongoing management of an organization's strategy become increasingly important to ensuring they maintain compliance and avoid potential financial and legal implications.

Additionally, there are many lesser-known factors that must be considered when planning for the law such as changes in workforce composition, higher attrition rates and increased unemployment costs.

During this complimentary webinar, "Affordable Care Act: Pay. Play. Now What?" senior vice president of Workforce Analytics for Equifax Workforce Solutions, Mike Psenka, and Thomas R. Dowling, attorney for Stinson Morrison Hecker, will explain how identifying the right approach to ACA is not a one-time decision. In order to remain compliant with this ever-changing legislation, employers must continually monitor, measure and adjust their strategy.

Psenka and Dowling will also highlight the unique ways in which ACA impacts different industries such as higher education, staffing, retail and hospitality. By walking through real-life scenarios, attendees can expect to learn more about best practices for developing and managing ACA strategies, the legislation's hidden costs, and solutions that will help take the guesswork out of ACA and minimize compliance risks.

Human resource, financial and management professionals interested in learning more about developing a successful, adaptable strategy to better manage the impacts of the ACA  are encouraged to attend this informative session.
