Unemployment/ ACA/ SB 626

Small Business California is on the Labor Secretary’s Unemployment Task Force. There is a 1`0 plus billion dollar shortage in the state unemployment account. California is traditionally late in their payments to the Federal government causing penalties which are paid by employers.

What has been your experience in dealing with unemployment claims?

Do you have any ideas how the debt can be repaid?

Are you concerned about the impact this will have on your business?

I have been contacted to see if I know of businesses in the LA area that would be willing to speak to NPR about the impact of the Affordable Care Act on their business. They are trying to focus on businesses with 40 to 60 employees who may face the 50 person threshold and be required to provide insurance to their employees or face a fine.

Next Wednesday SB 626 will be heard in the Senate Labor and Industrial Relations Committee. This is an awful bill that rolls back reforms Small Business California worked so hard on getting passed last year. We have put together a coalition of over 30 small business associations opposing this bill. Small Business California will be there to speak in opposition.
