Employer Requirement to Inform Works about the Health Insurance Marketplace by October 1st, 2013
Beginning October 1, 2013, individuals will be able to go to their respective state marketplace to purchase coverage, if needed, from the Health Insurance Marketplace. It was created through implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. ALL employers are required to inform ALL of their respective workers about the marketplace. Even those workers who currently are not eligible for health insurance through their employer must be provided notification about the Marketplace. The Department of Labor has clarified that it won't penalize employers for not providing the notice, but is still asking all employers covered by the Fair Labor Standards Act to comply with the law.
