After delaying the entire employer mandate penalty to 1/1/2015, the Obama Admin just announced that they are making changes again:
- Businesses Under 100 Employees: No penalties will be assessed until 1/1/2016 for failure to offer affordable coverage.
- Businesses Over 100 Employees: Compliance requirement lowered for 2015 to 70% of eligible employees who work over 30 hours / week. Down from 95%. This goes back to 95% on 1/1/16.
