New York's Cooperative and Condominium Community

Habitat Magazine July/August 2020 free digital issue



City comptroller says retail vacancies increased by half in last decade.

If your cooperative or condominium association has employees, you should be aware of the October 1 deadline for notices under the recently enacted Affordable Care Act. Under the Act, all covered employers must provide notice of insurance coverage options to their employees by October 1, 2013. However, on September 11, 2013, the Department of Labor indicated that employers would not be fined if they failed to meet this deadline since most of the infrastructure for the Affordable Care Act has not been developed. It is your choice, then, whether to meet the deadline or not. As an attorney, I recommend you do so if possible.
