PPACA Highlights Need for Kronos Workforce Management Solutions

CHELMSFORD, Mass. --(Business Wire)--

Mandatory compliance with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) has become a certainty for all U.S. employers. All organizations - particularly those with part-time workers - now face the challenge of ensuring compliance and absorbing the anticipated costs of PPACA without jeopardizing bottom-line results.

News Facts

  • A recent study conducted by Mercer on the impact of PPACA found that 60 percent of respondents expect an increase in costs and one-third of those expect an increase of five percent or more1.
  • Kronos Incorporated can help organizations manage their bottom line while complying with the new PPACA requirements by:
    • Providing accurate information about average hours worked by full-time and part-time employees to comply with PPACA regulations.
    • Delivering timely analysis of employee benefit eligibility, thus improving compliance and reducing financial penalties.
    • Monitoring an organization's workforce by analyzing schedules, time records, and benefits enrollment in real time.
    • Notifying the appropriate agencies of PPACA compliance through audting and reporting built into the workforce management suite.

Supporting Quotes

  • Paul DeCamp, partner, Jackson Lewis LLP
    "Many organizations had been taking a wait-and-see approach to PPACA compliance. Now that the election is over, it would be prudent for employers to get a strategy in place and develop tools and processes to comply before the 2014 deadline."
  • Jim Kizielewicz, senior vice president, Kronos (News - Alert)
    "By leveraging Kronos workforce management solutions, organizations can more effectively manage their largest controllable expense and biggest asset: labor. Organizations that have automated their workforce management processes will be better prepared to combat the near-term impacts of the PPACA."
