With the vast array of communication tools available today, it would seem that relaying the nuances of the Affordable Care Act to employees would be as effortless as emailing a memo.
That, of course, is not the case. The most talked-about law across the land apparently is the most frustratingly complex to explain as well. In one organization’s campaign to help the messenger ease the confusion, the International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans has issued a communiqué on how to communicate the ACA to your employees.
Here are five recommendations:
The Brookfield, Wisconsin-based foundation recently released “Explaining the Affordable Care Act (ACA) to Your Workers: A How-To Guide” that contains a glossary of ACA-specific terms, a timeline detailing the implementation of the law and a fact sheet about what ACA means for employees. It’s available at ifebp.org/communicatingACA.
We build robust scheduling & attendance software for businesses with 500+ frontline workers. With custom BI reporting and demand-driven scheduling, we help our customers reduce labor spend and increase profitability across their business. It's as simple as that.
