DOL Delays Employer Notice Requirements under Affordable Care Act

The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) announced on January 24th that employers will not have to provide notices about the Exchanges established under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) until later this summer or fall. The ACA amended the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) to require applicable employers to provide each employee at the time of hiring (or with respect to current employees, not later than March 1, 2013), a written notice informing employees of, among other things, the existence of Exchanges, a description of the services provided by the Exchanges, and the manner in which an employee may contact Exchanges to request assistance.

Under the FLSA amendment, DOL is to issue regulations on the notice requirements. Accordingly, DOL said that until such regulations are issued and become applicable, employers are not required to comply with the new FLSA section 18B.

The announcement was part of DOL's FAQs on implementation of the ACA. The FAQs may be found at www.dol.gov/ebsa/healthreform.
