Employer should pay tax penalty.
I live and work in Pennsylvania and my employer employs more than 50 people. I worked for the company for about two years, before the implementation of Obama Care, and then took a leave of absence. I have been back with the company for 7+ months.
I came back as a floater but often worked more than 40 hours in a week and have been given a full time permanent 48 hour per week schedule since the last week of October. I have asked my employer 3 times if they would be offering me health coverage. I have never received a solid yes or no. I know that many of the full time people are receiving company sponsored health care.
Now the deadline for Obama Care has come and gone, and it is my understanding I will need to pay a penalty for not complying. What are the rules and penalties my employer faces? I believe they may be culpable for my penalties as well any fines imposed on businesses for not fully complying with the health care act.
I would appreciate hearing any insights anyone may have...
