The ACA and Collective Bargaining: Smart Negotiations

Tuesday, June 11, 2013
01:00 PM - 02:00 PM ET

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) will have major implications for collective bargaining and how unionized employers cost and negotiate their labor contracts.

Important provisions of the ACA, including the shared responsibility rules, become effective for all employers on January 1, 2014, regardless of whether that date falls in the middle of a collective bargaining agreement term.

Please join us for an interactive webinar that will provide unionized employers with information and tools to help them navigate ACA issues in collective bargaining negotiations. This webinar will explore the following:

  • Key ACA provisions that unionized employers should understand:
  • Employer shared responsibility penalty (including measuring the full-time status of employees)
  • Coverage mandates (for grandfathered and nongrandfathered plans)
  • 90-day waiting period rule
  • Coordinating ACA compliance obligations with multiemployer plans
  • Whether (and when) insurance exchanges may be a viable alternative to employer-sponsored coverage
  • Strategic considerations for collective bargaining
