Employers may receive notices from the Marketplaces indicating that they may be subject to the shared responsibility payment because an employee requested and received a subsidy. Employers have a short window of 90 days to respond and provide documentation if they wish to appeal information in the notice, so it is important to act quickly.
Starting in 2016, under the ACA, certain employers with 50 or more full-time employees or full-time equivalents must offer health insurance coverage to their full-time employees and dependents.
