    Beginning in 2014, employers with 50 or more full-time employees (or full-time equivalent employees) will have to offer health coverage that meets government requirements to their full-time employees or pay one of two penalty taxes.  Calculating the potential “play or pay” penalties can be complicated.  How the penalties are calculated and when and how employers will pay them will be discussed in detail in this 90 minute webinar.  If you’re an employer with 50 or more employees, you won’t want to miss this informative, intermediate-level webinar.
