PPACA Posting Requirements


The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) was signed into law March 2010.  When the legislation was signed, it provided that the many guidelines would become active on a progressive basis, taking effect at different times in the years following its enactment. 

One of the ACA requirements for employers subject to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) is to inform employees of their coverage options, including the availability of coverage through the health insurance marketplace.  Current employees must receive such notice prior to 10/1/13; effective 10/1/13, employers are required to provide such notice to new employees upon hire.  The NYS Department of Civil Service has posted a notice, which can be used to provide the required information to employees.  Please ensure that your employees receive this notice as required; additional information can be found in Technical Release 2013-02.
