Healthcare Reform: The Lodging Industry's Guide
To help you understand the implications of the new healthcare reform, the following resources are available. Focusing on the direct impact new legislation will have on the lodging industry — and your business — these resources will help you better strategize employee benefits, while adhering to the latest regulations.
Starting in 2014, the new law will require most people to carry health insurance. Employers with more than 50 employees must offer healthcare insurance coverage--or pay a fine for every uninsured employee. Small businesses with fewer than 50 workers will not face penalties for not providing insurance, but will be offered tax credits to assist in covering their employees.

Employees must also become educated about what the new healthcare law requires of them and their family. While the information resources in this section are designed to give you a better understanding of this complex new law, please note they are by no means exhaustive or serve as a substitute for proper legal guidance or planning.
