The Affordable Care Act changed the U.S.’s national health landscape – this is not news. However, that the Act’s effects reach beyond the health care stratosphere and into a vast expanse of tangential practice areas is, to many, headline-worthy. In this program, Epstein Becker and Green partner, Gretchen Harders, explores the many angles and effects of the now infamous Act.
Ms. Harders begins this program with a brief discussion of the Act’s implementation. Next, the program highlights new, resulting employment law considerations, underscoring the organizational classifications pertinent to employers' determination of where their companies now stand. Ms. Harders then evaluates new tax considerations and explains adjustments to prior methods of computation, respective to a vast scale of company size-based classifications. Finally, Ms. Harders helps define the multiple “types” of employees and explains how the status of each affects their requisite health care and employee status. Join Lawline and Ms. Harders for this comprehensive analysis of the Affordable Care Act.
I. Recognize the ACA’s impact on employers of various types and sizes
II. Identify new tax provisions relating to implementation of ACA programs
III. Distinguish different employee types as defined by ACA provisions
IV. Implement a cross-organizational ACA-compliant employee benefit policy
V. Digest additional significant ACA provisions
Ms. Harders' practice focuses on all aspects of executive compensation and employee benefits law. Ms. Harders counsels a broad range of clients on executive compensation and employee benefit issues, tax-qualified and non-qualified plans, 401(k) plans, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, deferred compensation, executive incentive compensation plans, executive employment and severance agreements, Section 409A compliance, equity-based compensation plans, multiemployer plans and health and welfare plans and trusts.
Ms. Harders has been selected for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America – Employee Benefits (ERISA) Law (2014) and Super Lawyers New York Metro – Employee Benefits/ERISA (2013) and recommended by The Legal 500 United States (2013).
