As the legal W-2 employer of record for the contract candidates that recruiters place through our back-office we are compliant on all three issues. Below is a brief overview of our position on each.
Q) How is FH addressing the Affordable Care Act (ACA) requirement to offer medical coverage to all eligible employees?
FH offers contractors a choice of four ACA compliant insurance plans through AETNA. Contractors can choose a traditional PPO plan or one of the increasingly popular High Deductible Plan (HDP) that offers the Health Savings Account (HSA) option.
Q) How is FH handling the Paid Sick Leave (PSL) laws that are popping up in states and cities across the country?
FH is compliant with the current states and cities that require PSL. Each employee is provided documentation for their specific state or city as part of their onboarding process. We also monitor and track all pending legislation for PSL around the country.
Q) What is FH’s position on Medical and Recreational Marijuana?
FH is firmly committed to a drug-free workplace. In 1970, the U.S. Congress placed marijuana in Schedule 1 of the Controlled Substances Act (CSA). The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), which administers the CSA, continues to support that placement along with the Federal Drug Administration (FDA). Twenty-three states and the District of Columbia currently have laws legalizing marijuana in some form. While we respect every State’s right to create their own marijuana usage laws, FoxHire chooses to follow Federal Guidelines that classify “Marijuana” as an illegal drug.
The complexity of being an employer increases each month. Consequently, the FH team continues to educate themselves through ongoing training, attending conferences, memberships in National Organizations, and partnering with experts in this field. We take care of the compliance issues so you can focus on recruiting and your clients can be assured the contract candidates are being offered all the required benefits.
