NRA fights for members on health-care law implementation

The National Restaurant Association weighed in this month as the Treasury Department and Internal Revenue Service sought preliminary feedback on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act's sections on "Employer Responsibility."

These PPACA provisions will in 2014 require employers of 50 or more full-time-equivalent employees to offer health care coverage to full-time employees.

Treasury and IRS asked for feedback on a range of topics, including how to define full-time and part-time employees; how to calculate whether an employer has 50 or more full-time-equivalent employees; how employers will interact with state insurance exchanges; and waiting-period requirements before large applicable employers must offer health coverage to full-time employees.

The agencies' call for comments comes before the formal regulatory process gets underway. We will have more opportunities to comment.

The NRA submitted comments on its own with participating state restaurant associations. We also submitted comments as part of the Employers for Flexibility in Health Care Coalition. The NRA is a leadership committee member of EFHC, which represents industries that have a unique reliance on large numbers of part-time, temporary and seasonal employees with fluctuating and unpredictable work hours, as well as unpredictable lengths of service. Read NRA's comments and the coalition's comments.

Stay tuned to healthcare.restaurant.org for all the latest on the 2010 health care law.
