Employers will not face a penalty if they fail to inform their workers by October 1 about changes under President Barack Obama's healthcare law, the administration said, in what will likely come as a relief to many small businesses.
The federal government is requiring businesses to notify employees about the new health insurance marketplaces created by the law that are set to start enrolling millions of Americans beginning October 1.
Employers are also required to inform employees that they may be able to get lower-cost insurance on the exchanges, but if they buy insurance on the exchange, they may lose their employer contribution.
Media reports have said that many small businesses had been unaware of the requirement, and therefore were at risk of potential penalties.

Well, defense companies were not being fined for not sending layoff notices way back when 6 months prior to sequester layoffs...
it’s all to create this big backlog of disobeyed law. whether they plan to come forward later and selectively enforce it to deal with troublemakers, or just let it sit there ignored to bring more contempt on the idea of law, it’s a great exploit of these uber lefties.
my employer sent me an e-mail explaining all about how Obamacare would offer these health exchanges that I would not likely ever use because our health insurance met the standards and didn’t cost too much yet.
To be fair, there were no mass layoffs, so in the end, not sending notices wasn’t a crime.
With these corrupt tyrants it is the rest of the story that is important.
What are they are hiding?
What they are not saying?
It always turns out that they never tell the complete story, never tell the entire truth.
