Under the ACA, the “employer shared responsibility provision” sometimes referred to as “Pay or Play”, mid-size to large employers can choose to offer health insurance or pay a penalty. Employers may be trying to decide whether they want to pay the penalty or “play” and offer coverage to their employees.

First, some questions you might need to ask yourself:
Are you an applicable large employer?
Which employees count when you’re determining if you’re an applicable large employer?

Here is a helpful tool that can answer those questions.


Reporting can be confusing, not to mention the instructions for the 1095-C and 1094-C forms are complex. Determining if you have the required number of full time employees and if you are offering coverage to at least 95% of their full time employees, can be confusing. The good news is, with SuiteHR, ACA reporting is easy and will run reports in real time, with the ability to drill down into each employee file. Compliance alerts will also notify managers if an employees status changes from full time to part time.

We help simplify the processes around ACA compliance to help avoid steep penalties. Tracking, integrating and analyzing data across time and attendance, payroll and HR is here and we make it simple.
