    ACA is far-reaching and continually evolving legislation, which challenges businesses of every size. For those employers with 50 or more full-time employees, compliance is both critical and complicated. OneGroup is working with its clients to ensure that their benefits programs are in compliance, and helping them to plan for the future.

    ACA May Significantly Impact a Company’s Strategies and Operations

    At a recent educational seminar hosted by OneGroup for businesses most affected by ACA, we learned that business leaders were concerned by the legislation and compliance calendar. Further, they indicated that they were keenly interested in learning more about how current and future requirements of the ACA would affect their businesses. Equally important, they wanted a simple step-by-step process for getting started.
