New Deadline Brings to Light New Cost and Compliance Requirements

LUTHERVILLE, Md. ­ Mary Kraft Staffing and HR Solutions and Niles, Barton & Wilmer, LLP, is holding a free seminar in September to discuss the new affordable healthcare reform law going into effect Jan. 1, 2015 and compliance strategies for employers.

Affordable Healthcare Reform and Compliance Seminar
Monday, Sept. 30, 2013
7:30 ­ 11:30 a.m. Crowne Plaza Hotel
2004 Greenspring Dr.
Timonium, Md.

The half­day seminar is geared for business owners, who will learn about the cost and compliance requirements surrounding the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, as well as OSHA and workplace safety as it pertains to the new law. A recent government announcement postponed the affordable healthcare reform rules until January 1, 2015, citing “concerns about the complexity of the requirements and the need for more time to implement them effectively.”

Three experts on affordable healthcare reform, including two involved in Massachusetts healthcare reform, will lead the discussion. Those speakers are:

  • Alden Bianchi, the practice group leader of the Mintz Levin law firm’s employee benefits and executive compensation practice. He represented the Romney administration in connection with the historic 2006 Massachusetts Health Care Reform Act, and he has testified before the Senate Finance Committee on the subject of healthcare reform. He is a resource to one of the nation’s premier tax and legal publishers, Tax Management, Inc./Bureau of National Affairs.
  • Richard Purtell, the CEO of American Resource Staffing, who will talk about healthcare reform
    from the business owner’s perspective. He will provide specific insights on practical products and resources that helped his company adapt to healthcare reform in Massachusetts six years ago.
  • Stephanie Richfield, the safety director at American Resource Staffing in Boston, and an OSHA 10­hour certified trainer will provide insights and resources for achieving a safe and healthy workplace and managing workers compensation costs and claims.

The event is free and includes breakfast and networking opportunities.
