President Barack Obama signed a law halting the change in the definition of small business. The number of employees that constitute a small business was scheduled to increase from “up to 50 employees” to “up to 100 employees” on January 1, 2016. This would have resulted in numerous premium hikes for many small businesses.
Under the Affordable Care Act, small businesses are required to offer certain health insurance benefits.
The new changes keep the definition at “up to 50 employees” for small business consideration, but will allow the states to increase the number at their discretion.
