Transition from cash-in-lieu issue Transition from cash-in-lieu issue
Prior to the Employer Mandate under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), government contracting employers had little motivation to change from the common practice of paying cash-in-lieu to providing benefits. Now under the ACA, all large employers are required to offer employees with a valuable and affordable insurance program or pay a hefty, non-tax deductible fine. Although this change from cash in employee’s pockets to a benefits program makes good business sense, communicating it to employees can be difficult as most may see it as a reduction in pay.
