Obama admin announces another employer mandate delay

By Sarah Hurtubise | The Daily Caller

The Department of Treasury announced Monday it will delay another year the Obamacare requirement for medium-sized employers to offer health insurance to full-time workers.

The Obama administration won’t enforce the rule until 2016 for business with between 50 and 99 employees. All companies with 100 employees or more will be subject to the employer mandate beginning in 2015, after an initial delay was announced before the Independence Day holiday in 2013.

“While about 96 percent of employers are not subject to the employer responsibility provision, for those employers that are, we will continue to make the compliance process simpler and easier to navigate,” said Assistant Secretary for Tax Policy Mark Mazur.
