LCIS_MembBenefits_AbsentEmployee

This question was posed to an Attorney at Littler Mendelson…

“We have an employee who has been working with our Company for a little over 90 days. During that time, she has been absent a lot. She says she has allergies and migraines, although she has no doctor’s confirmation. We have less than 50 employees and it had become a hardship having her miss work and for her to be late excessively. When she is here she does a good job, but she needs to cover for a person on vacation and because of her behavior, the owner thinks she is unreliable.”

LCIS_MembBenefits_HealthLaws (1)

This question was posed to an Attorney at Jackson Lewis PC…

“We are concerned that if we are an S-Corp with less than 50 employees, could we be fined $100.00 per day per employee if we do not provide health coverage? We have read that this rule was coming into effect on Jan 1, 2016, and we’re concerned because we can not afford the premiums. Is this correct?”
