The Obama administration on Monday announced it is delaying the employer mandate under ObamaCare until 2016 for some small businesses.
This delay in the mandate — the second so far — would only apply to businesses with between 50 and 99 employees, who would have until January 2016 to decide whether to offer insurance to their employees or pay a penalty. Businesses would also be barred from cutting their workers in order to fall under the threshold.
The employer mandate, a cornerstone of the healthcare law, was set to take effect in January, but the administration announced in July that companies would have until January of 2015 to comply.
