Dec. 9, 2014

"For decades, employers have had a considerable amount of flexibility in helping their employees obtain coverage under individual health insurance plans. Unfortunately, this flexibility is gone, and employers who are unaware of the changes are potentially exposed to a Draconian penalty ... The employers can give the employees a general increase in their compensation, but only the increase is not contingent upon the obtaining or maintenance of individual health coverage. It would ... behoove the employer in this situation to leave a very clear record that the compensation increase is in no way conditional upon the health coverage."
