If you are a large employer (you have more than 50 full-time equivalent employees), you may owe a penalty if you do not provide affordable and minimum essential coverage to all of your full-time employees. A full-time employee is one that averages more than 30 hours per week of work, although there are special rules for employees with variable hours.
