• October 1 Is Almost Here:  Are You Ready to Send Out Your Marketplace Notice?
  • September 27, 2013
  • Law Firm: Alston Bird LLP - Atlanta Office
  • This is a reminder that the Marketplace Notice required by new Section 18B of the Fair Labor Standards Act (as added by the Section 1512 of the ACA) must be distributed to existing employees—without regard to health plan eligibility—on or before October 1, 2013, and thereafter to new employees within 14 days of their hire date. No doubt that you have had sufficient notice of this impending obligation from us and others—and most of you have already taken the steps necessary to furnish the notice by October 1—but we felt that the constant flow of guidance from the agencies regarding the Affordable Care Act (ACA) warranted a reminder.
