Does “Employer Shared Responsibility” Apply to You? Find Out.


If you own a small business or small business chain, you may not be entirely clear on what your exact responsibilities are regarding the Affordable Care Act. Admittedly, it’s rather complicated to understand and navigate all the aspects of the Employer Shared Responsibility requirement to the Affordable Care Act — what applies to you and what doesn’t — especially without a guide.

No matter how you feel about it personally, ACA compliance is something that you need to understand. Even if the requirements don’t apply to you or your company, you should know what the requirements are, so if your business’s situation changes or the requirements are changed, you’ll have an understanding to build on.

Luckily, we’ve found the perfect way to explain all of this complexity. His name is Sean.
