The Affordable Care Act (ACA) represents a sweeping change in the way employers deliver health insurance benefits to employees. Farm Credit East, in conjunction with supporting organizations, will be hosting a webinar to update agricultural and forest product businesses on these changes. This webinar will be held on October 22, at 7:30 p.m. Participation is free.

“The Affordable Care Act webinar is part of our Knowledge Exchange initiative to bring information on emerging challenges and industry trends to customers and other stakeholders,” said Robert Smith, Farm Credit East executive vice president.

The ACA has broad implications for employers of all sizes, especially those with 50 or more employees. There are new developments in the implementation of the law and new provisions taking effect that employers should be aware of. Sheldon Blumling, an attorney with Fisher & Phillips, LLP, will present this webinar. He will review some basics of the law and provide an update on where things stand now, as well as key considerations for agricultural employers.
