The chronological distance between 2013 and 2014 is only one year, but employers will face several major challenges during that short time period concerning workers’ compensation benefits, safety policies and health insurance programs. Taft and Mercer will present a seminar to discuss the important aspects of these developments, how they will impact your organization and what steps you should take to minimize the legal risks and associated costs. On Thursday, March 14th we will present a complimentary seminar for our clients and friends addressing the following topics:

What is the best strategy for minimizing costs in 2013 and 2014 -- private exchanges, subcontracting, limiting growth? What does “affordable care” mean and to whom must it be provided?
