Study points to health law's penalties

New York Times, May 24, 2010

About one-third of employers subject to major requirements of the new healthcare law may face tax penalties because they offer health insurance that could be considered unaffordable to some employees, a new study says. The study, by Mercer, one of the nation's largest employee benefit consulting concerns, is based on a survey of nearly 3,000 employers. It suggests that a little-noticed provision of the law could affect far more employers than Congress had assumed, the New York Times reports.
