More than 1,300 employers sign up for NRA's notification tool

Health insurance exchanges, the centerpiece of the 2010 health care law, have opened, and individuals have begun enrolling in insurance plans for 2014. Restaurants, like all other employers covered by the Fair Labor Standards Act, must give written notice about the health insurance exchanges to new and existing employees.

The National Restaurant Association’s online Notification Tool makes the notification process easy. More than 1,300 restaurateurs have signed up for the Notification Tool in the past month.

The Notification Tool, which is available exclusively to NRA members, offers:
  • An easy way for employers to notify employees about the new, government-run health insurance exchanges
  • Simple online registration that guides employers through the ACA-required information process
  • Stored employee notification for employer tracking and proof of notification
  • Peace of mind that employees have been properly notified.
Corner Bakery Café is part of the growing number of companies that are using the NRA’s Notification Tool to fulfill their requirements under the health care law.

“We’ve found the Notification Tool to be a great resource for communicating with our managers and home office employees,” said Denise Clemons, Corner Bakery Café’s senior vice president for people resources. “The tool is user friendly, easy to understand, and the team at the NRA worked diligently to help us set it up.” 
Even if you've missed the Oct. 1, 2013 deadline to notify your employees of the health care exchanges, you are still obligated to do so.
