If an employee changes from part-time to full-time status, when do you need to start offering coverage? How do periods of leave, like FMLA or jury duty, apply for determining if an employee is a full-time employee?

Liliana Salazar, Chief Compliance Officer Pacific Region of HUB International, answers these questions and explains the Affordable Care Act (ACA) Employer Mandate rules around employee status changes. She also discusses how to measure hours of service and other special rules you should be aware of as an Applicable Large Employer (ALE).
