The implementation of the Affordable Care Act’s mandates can present potential traps for even seasoned human resources and benefits professionals.  This session will provide practical guidance for complying with new and upcoming ACA requirements, including the large employer mandate, reporting and procedural requirements, and the dreaded “Cadillac” excise tax.  Because these changes can lead to special challenges for public employers who are considering altering their benefits packages to comply with the Affordable Care Act, this interactive session will focus on practical strategies for addressing these issues during bargaining.  The program also will cover the challenges raised by providing benefits for difficult and unique categories of employees, including highly compensated managerial employees and temporary, volunteer and seasonal workers.   Attendees will leave this enlightening session armed with strategies to ensure Affordable Care Act compliance in 2016 and beyond.
