Regardless of your plans regarding compliance with the federal health care reform law, known as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA), or your intended timing for compliance, every employer is obligated under law to take specific action by October 1, 2013.
October 1 was the deadline for production companies to both distribute the Notice of Exchange (NOE) to existing employees and begin providing to all new hires. EP has created a quick and easy way for you to generate your NOE template yourself. Simply input your information and an NOE template will be generated and emailed to you immediately.
All employers with at least 50 full-time employees and equivalents must offer affordable and adequate health coverage starting January 1, 2015, or pay a penalty tax. The IRS issued proposed regulations at the end of 2012 to implement this employer play-or-pay health coverage mandate.
In co-employment relationships, such as those that exist in the entertainment industry, the ACA provides that the co-employer that directs and controls the worker's day-to-day functions is the responsible employer for the ACA. This means that the production company will be responsible for providing coverage under the ACA as the controlling co-employer.
