Although the Supreme Court has upheld the federal Affordable Care Act, the National Restaurant Association believes Congress must make common-sense changes to the law. Dawn Sweeney, president and CEO of the National Restaurant Association, issued the following statement regarding the Supreme Court’s decision on King vs. Burwell:
“While (this) decision by the Supreme Court is one of great importance to the dialogue on healthcare coverage across the country, there are issues within the current law that need to be addressed.
“We are concerned that the issues impacting restaurants and the employer community at large have yet to move forward in Congress. Certain provisions within ACA, like the definition of full-time employment at 30 hours, the lack of clarity regarding reporting requirements, auto-enrollment, the inconsistency of defining ‘seasonal employment’ and the process of determining which businesses are considered ‘large’ under the law, have placed an enormous amount of undue burden on American businesses large and small.”
