Ceridian Hosts Webinar On Final Preparations For The Affordable Care Act

Washington D.C. Executive Consultant & The Rose Group Discuss Compliance Challenges & Dayforce HCM Ability To Address ACA Requirements

Minneapolis, MN, November 3, 2014 – Ceridian announces its free webinar: The ACA – Final Preparation. The one-hour webinar will feature Jim O’Connell, Washington D.C. executive consultant and Paul Rockelmann, vice president of Human Resources, The Rose Group.  Mr. Rockelmann will share the challenges and experiences he faces to prepare his company for ACA mandates. Mr. O’Connell will outline key ACA employer compliance issues, 2015 implementation and share insights on the November 4th U.S. midterm election results and potential impacts on ACA. 

“ACA compliance puts enormous pressure on employers of all sizes,” says Jim O’Connell, Washington D.C. executive consultant.  “Employers are advised first to establish an ACA compliance strategy with clear lines of responsibility and C-level buy-in.  Second, put in place the kind of single solution, best-in-class HCM system that will allow seamless management of ACA compliance requirements.  That said, Election Day could bring a change in power in the U.S. Congress and in this sense voters indirectly may decide what’s next for the Affordable Care Act.”

Webinar attendees will learn:

  • Challenges and experiences The Rose Group faced in preparation for ACA mandates
  • Updates on ACA deadlines and requirements
  • How the U.S. November election results could affect the ACA

Register today and join us on November 6th from 12 pm ET – 1 pm ET to learn about key ACA deadlines and get a debrief on what the election results mean for the future of the Affordable Care Act.
