I recently had a conversation with a business owner who had just received an EEOC charge from one of his employees. This space does not allow for an explanation of all the details of the allegations made by the employee, but let's just say "frivolous" is an understatement.

I was recently at a Staffing Association conference and one of the speakers was giving us an overview of how this law will impact businesses, insurers and citizens of our country. To say I was mortified would be a gross understatement. Because the original bill was over 2000 pages long, it is obvious that this space does not allow a great amount of detail regarding all the provisions of the law. However, here are just a few disturbing facts:
1. Employers will face two choices: offer health care coverage to their employees or not. If they offer coverage, but some of the employees are eligible for certain tax credits, employers will be required...[read more]
