Compliance uneven on Massachusetts healthcare law
Audits of select Massachusetts businesses suggest that a substantial number may not be providing workers the health coverage required by the state's insurance law. Of the 426 companies audited so far, 40% had violated the law's requirement that most employers contribute a portion of their workers' insurance premiums or pay a penalty. Business leaders say the problem is that the rules are so confusing that many employers are having a hard time understanding what is required of them.
