Health Scare for Small Businesses

Health Scare for Small Businesses | Small Business Technology Solutions | Scoop.it
Even though new federal health-care regulations don't go into effect until 2014, a business could be subject to the employer mandate if, during 2013, it averages 50 or more full-time equivalent employees.
Origin Development's insight:

The irony here is that the Healthcare Law was supposed to extend coverage and increase employer participation. The unfortunate side-effect is that it will continue to stifle growth, particularly among small business employers that are on the cusp of 50 employees. The issue is not only the additional cost of being required to provide health coverage, but the uncertainty of being required to comply with regulations which haven't been fully written yet. A small business that may be able to afford to provide health insurance to its employees may not be able to afford the cost of the "Healthcare Compliance" that will be necessary to make sure the coverage fits within the constantly changing government regulations.

The best path for many small businesses is to stay small, outsource, and avoid the law. Unfortunatlye, the result of this law is the exact opposite of its original intention, which was to provide stability, extend coverage, and promote economic growth. It has instead extended instability, reduced coverage, and stifled growth.
