With summer approaching and the Affordable Care Act (ACA) in full swing, CAAs may be faced with questions about how the ACA applies to summer or other temporary workers. This set of Frequently Asked Questions addresses the applicability of the ACA to employees who are not traditional year-round employees. Specifically, we address the applicability of the ACA to participants in job training programs, but the analysis could also apply to other types of limitedtime employees, such as LIHEAP intake workers hired on a temporary basis.
Like many employers, CAAs are experiencing challenges retaining their existing staff and recruiting new employees in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. To help CAAs strategize for employee recruitment and retention in a post-pandemic world, CAPLAW has created this guide identifying some types of compensation they can offer, and the laws and regulations governing their salaries and benefits.
