Several months ago we alerted you to the Affordable Care Act’s requirement that you give a written notice to all employees about the new health insurance Exchanges by October 1, 2013. It is important to remember that you must also give the notice to each new employee at the time of hire or no later than within 14 days of an employee’s start date. The U. S. Department of Labor (DOL) has provided a model Exchange notice for employers who offer a health plan to some or all employees, and a separate model notice for employers who do not offer a health plan. Those model notices are found on the DOL’s web page with other information about the Act" . Employers may use one of those models or may use another form of notice, provided that the notice contain the required information as described on the DOL’s information page.
