Health Care Reform seminar scheduled June 12 at EITC

The Greater Idaho Falls Chamber of Commerce, Eastern Idaho Technical College and the law firm of Hawley Troxell are sponsoring a seminar June 12 called "What Employers Need to Know About Health Care Reform."

With 2014 only six months away, the clock is ticking for Idaho employers to bring themselves into compliance with the Affordable Care Act. Larger employers are looking at penalties if they do not provide minimum health coverage, but even before implementation employers are going to have to comply with new rules, fees and reporting requirements.

The program will be from 9 to 11 a.m. in the EITC Health Care Education Building, Rooms 6163 and 6164. Breakfast will be provided. To secure a seat, RSVP by 5 p.m. Friday using this link: Health Care Seminar Reservation.

The speakers will be Tom Mortell, Kara Heikkila and Bret Clark of Hawley Troxell, who will walk employers through a timeline for compliance and provide background information to make sense of the law. Topics will include compliance deadlines and how to properly classify employees and independent contractors to avoid or minimize penalties.
