Requirement to Notify Employees

The Affordable Care Act requires all employers in California, regulated by the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) to provide a notice to employees informing them of the existence of Covered California (the Marketplace), and the ability to purchase health insurance in the Marketplace. The regulations require that employers notify new employees within 14 days of the employee's start date. Businesses can use the Department of Labor (DOL) tool online to determine if they must comply with FLSA. The DOL has provided a list of frequently asked questions to help businesses.

The labor notice to employees is required by the DOL Technical Release No. 2013-12
