BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

EMPLOYER IMPACT

Reprints

A comparison of fees imposed on employers for employees' health care coverage in a law proposed in California vs. laws in effect in Massachusetts and Vermont.

Massachusetts

Annual assessment of up to $295 per employee imposed on employers with at least 11 employees that do not offer health insurance coverage.

Vermont

Annual assessment of $365 per employee imposed on employers with nine or more employees that do not offer coverage. Employers exclude eight employees in calculating the assessment. For example, employers with nine employees not offering coverage would pay an annual assessment of $365, while those with 20 employees that do not offer coverage would pay $4,380. In future years, assessment will apply to smaller employers.

California*

Employers with at least 10 employees that do not offer coverage pay assessment equal to 4% of payroll.

* As proposed by Gov. Schwarzenegger
