Are You Ready for The Affordable Care Act?
Prepare with Labor Management Systems by UniFocus

May 20, 2013 - The Affordable Care Act (ACA) will significantly impact the way you manage and schedule labor.  The hospitality market typically employs more part time and lower wage hourly workers than companies in other industries.  This means your organization will be more affected by key provisions in the ACA that are set to take effect in 2014.

Is your organization ready for the ACA?
Prepare with UniFocus before you are taken by surprise.
What is the perfect mix of full-time and part-time employees when considering your strategies to comply with the ACA?  UniFocus labor systems have been designed to ensure complete compliance with your health care goals while ensuring  workforce productivity.

UniFocus’ Time and Attendance and Labor Management Systems manage the monitoring and scheduling of your labor, minimizing compliance risk and delivering actionable intelligence.

Begin preparing now to minimize the impact in 2014:
  • Schedule and monitor work hours to meet ACA requirement
  • Set weekly work hour maximums by individual employee for easy monitoring
  • Integrated hour balancing to ACA requirements while you are scheduling your upcoming weeks
  • Real-time compliance reporting of in-week approaching overtime and hour maximums
  • Manage in week adjustments for full time, part-time, and seasonal employees while hours are being met
  • Accurate labor analysis for employer-chosen look-back period and on-going monitoring
  • Average work-week reporting to determine employee benefit eligibility
  • Improve compliance and reduce penalties
  • Configurable reports for governmental compliance reporting
