If you wish the Affordable Care Act’s employer mandate would just fade away, you’re not alone. But the mandate appears as entrenched as ever, and employers still struggle to understand its many requirements. Listen as Ed and Scott get into the basics of the employer mandate and its potentially nuclear penalties in the first episode of a two-parter.

  • Is Ed’s new dog Jimmy assimilating to life outside the “big house?”
  • Isn’t the Texas v. US case just pitting America against America? But really, what might it mean for the ACA as a whole?
  • Ahoy there! How do you know if you’re in the employer mandate boat?
  • What’s required in the two “tiers” of the employer mandate? (Prepare for a lot of “tears.”)
  • Is the best way to calculate employees’ household income, for affordability purposes, with a Ouija board? (Scott would prefer to just see his psychic.)
  • What are the penalties for not fulfilling the employer mandate, and is doing nothing a legitimate strategy?
