Health scare for small businesses
from The Wall Street Journal
During her two-plus years in business, Elizabeth Turley has steadily recruited new employees for her apparel company to keep pace with its rapid growth. But this year could be different. Instead of increasing her staff, she plans to hire independent contractors for tasks that can be outsourced, such as marketing and product development. Her reason? The business is on the cusp of having 50 full-time employees. If the company hits that threshold, it will have to provide health coverage that meets government standards or potentially pay a penalty.
