Sarah Ivy, Chair of G&K’s Executive Compensation and Employee Benefit practice, provided the following update. Large franchisors and multi-unit franchise owners should take note.
We are watching the progress of H.R. 2575 very closely. Any upwards modification of the 30 hour per week standard in defining a full-time employee under PPACA would be a relief to those large employers subject to the pay-or-play penalties. We will keep you updated on the status of the Save American Workers Act bill. http://www.benefitspro.com/2014/02/04/committee-approves-full-time-worker-bill
