You can include these links in electronic communications to your new hires (e.g., via email, or add it to new hire information on your website), or you can print as appropriate and distribute hard copies to your employees:

Don't Forget!

Employers must ensure that each new employee (including those not eligible for benefits) receives proper ACA notification within their first 14 days of employment either by mailing the notice first-class USPS mail or hand-delivering it directly to the employee.

Visit the ACA/Healthcare Reform page for more details and template notices.
