Filling the need for trusted information on national health issues…

I’m an employer with agricultural workers. Am I required to provide health benefits to all of my workers?

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. In 2014, however, no penalties will be assessed.
