The massive health care law, known as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), continues to create uncertainty and confusion in the construction industry, making it difficult for the nation's contractors to plan for the future and create jobs. And with the employer mandate provisions becoming effective in 2015, significant employer education is required to understand how to comply with the law.

ABC’s newest member resource, the Health Care Law Employer Toolkit, offers a "one-stop shop" of resources to help employers navigate their way through the complex health care law.

The toolkit includes information for small and large employers on key PPACA provisions such as:  the employer mandate; employer information reporting requirements; the Health Insurance Marketplace (or Exchanges);  FLSA notice to employees of coverage options; PPACA tax related provisions and the Health Insurance Tax (HIT).  Members will have access to reference guides, webinars and power points, regulatory guidance and articles.  

The toolkit will be updated frequently as new information becomes available, so members are encouraged to check back often.

The Health Care Employer Toolkit can be accessed under the drop down menu under the Education and Training tab on the ABC website.  The toolkit is a part of the ABC Academy for Construction Ethics, Compliance and Best Practices so members that want to access the information will be directed to log-in. To obtain login information, ABC members should email academy@abc.org and include their name, company and ABC Chapter.
