It’s the final countdown! In part two of the last episode of the season, the guys really take flight on determining whether an employee is considered full-time under the ACA employer mandate. They explore measurement periods, who should get a coverage offer for the next plan year, and how long employers have to offer it before IRS penalties kick in.

  • How’s the new dog, Jimmy? (Don’t ask Ed’s wife.)
  • How can employers determine which employees have ACA full-time status?
  • Do paid vacation and leave count in calculating an employee’s hours of service? (Yes.)
  • Can Ed pronounce “extrapolates” correctly? (No.)
  • How is earning full-time employee status like earning frequent flyer miles?
  • What are the different measurement periods, and when should employers use them?
  • Can we wrap this up and head to happy hour already?

Remain calm - helpful charts are available through your Lockton account service team. We’ll see you again for season three, beginning in January 2020.
