Only if you know what’s headed your way can you properly prepare for it. While we don’t have a crystal ball for what your love life will be like, or whether you’ll win the lottery in 2016, we can help you get ready for work in the new year, and the new laws you will be facing.
Third, get a handle on all the new labor laws headed your way. We’ve outlined some of the major new laws hitting the books in January, as well as ways you can tackle them:
States like California and New York have signed Fair Pay Laws, which work to improve the pay of women in the workplace.
HSAs (Health Saving Account) let people set aside money on a pre-tax basis to be used later for healthcare costs. For 2016, the individual contribution rate stays the same, but the family rate goes up by $100 to $6,750.
Small Group Employer New Definitions. The PACE act, which President Obama signed in October, undid the ACA expansion of the definition of small group employers. States are now left to deliberate over their own definition of a small group.
Cadillac Tax Delay. On December 18th, President Obama signed a bill that delayed the start of the Cadillac Tax from 2018 to 2020.
Deadline Extension. On December 28th, the IRS extended the deadlines for the ACA by at least two months.
