Employer webinar Tuesday helps define the ‘common law employee’

UBA’s October Employer Webinar is fast approaching. Are you signed up?  On Tuesday, Oct. 13 Randal M. Limbeck will lead the discussion on “Determining Who is a Common Law Employee and Counting Them Under the Affordable Care Act”.

The discussion starts at 1 p.m. CST.

Employers under the Affordable Care Act are required to determine who their common law employees are and include them in their headcount. This count determines the employer’s applicable large employer (ALE) status. It can be dificult at times to determine which employees fit the definition.

Tuesday’s webinar will address:

Explain what a common law employee is
Discuss best practices for determining if an employee is a common law employee, including union employees and seasonal workers
Provide information on who is specifically excluded as a common law employee, including independent contractors
Discuss the Department of Labor’s new guidance on independent contractor classification
Discuss leased employees, temporary agency employees, and professional employer organization arrangements
Discuss employees who are working overseas, foreign workers, and workers on visas
Provide information on the process for determining how many full-time and full-time equivalent employees an employer has
Discuss how veterans with veteran health care are counted in the total ALE headcount
Review the rules an ALE must follow when designing common law employees’ waiting period or orientation period
This 90 minute basic to intermediate webinar will help employers understand how to determine which employees are common law employees and determine the employer’s size.
