Important Updates for Implementing the Look-Back Rule for Variable Hour Employees
July 26, 2016
“To avoid “A” penalties, the best practice for staffing firms, in ASA’s view, is to offer at least a basic MEC plan to all new full-time employees either at the time of application, the start of an assignment, or after a short waiting period (e.g., 60 days) after the assignment starts—even if they could be classified as variable-hour employee, subject to a 12-month look-back. In fact, because basic MEC plans are inexpensive, and to avoid tracking hours, some staffing firms simply offer the plan to all new employees even if they are not expected to work full-time hours.” (emphasis added)
