Jolie Havens, a partner in the Vorys Columbus office and member of the health care group, was quoted throughout a Columbus C.E.O. story regarding the Obama administration’s decision to extend the deadline for the Affordable Care Act mandate for employers (with 50 or more employees) to offer health benefits from Jan. 1, 2014 to Jan. 1, 2015.
The story states:
“‘This is not blowing smoke on the part of employers, this really is quite complex,’ says Havens. She and her colleagues at Vorys, Sater, Seymour and Pease have reached out to clients with a preliminary assessment of the delay, advised them that additional guidance is forthcoming, and offered encouragement to help them through the coming months of compliance work.
‘Employers would be well served to keep key players internally engaged, keep their advisors close by and to keep moving down that path towards compliance,’ says Havens. ‘Because even with this additional year, there’s still a lot to be accomplished.’”
