Execs' cushy healthcare could trigger fines

USA Today, May 10, 2013

Many executives have long enjoyed perks such as free health care and better health benefits for themselves and their families. But under a little noticed anti-discrimination provision in the federal health law, such advantages could soon trigger fines of up to $500,000. Employers "should be more concerned about this than anything else" in the law, because many are in violation, and the penalties can be stiff, said Jay Starkman, chief executive of Engage PEO in St. Petersburg, Fla., which offers human resources services and advises clients on the health law.
