The ACA's Employer Shared Responsibility Penalty

Large employers subject to the employer shared responsibility penalty under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) that contribute to multiemployer plans will generally be protected from the penalty with respect to those full-time employees for whom the employer is required to contribute to the plan.
