In 2016, many employers anticipated significant changes or, at least, clarification on Health Care Reform. For the most part, the feds made no substantial changes nor released any major clarification on requirements. However, employers were impacted by some minor developments in the law.
The most notable developments included:
- Paid sick leave was a huge trend, with many states and municipalities implementing legislation to increase the amount of paid time off.
- The government further developed the Affordable Care Act’s non-discrimination goal, and helped provide paid sick leave to government contractors.
