Please see information on California OSHA requirements. You should have had this done by February 1, but if not, complete form and post where you keep your other posters. You only need to post the summary not all employee information.
The requirements of the California recordkeeping standard apply to most of the employers that have over ten (10) employees. Some industries in the retail, service, finance, insurance and real estate sectors are potentially exempt from most recording requirements as are small businesses with ten or fewer employees. While some employers are partially exempt from recording requirements, all employers in California are still required to immediately report serious occupational injuries, illnesses or the death of an employee.
When is Cal/OSHA form 300-A, the Annual Summary, supposed to be posted ?
By February 1 of the year following the year covered by the records until April 30 of that same year.
I have had questions about how to comply with health insurance requirements under the Affordable Care Act. I will tell you it is not clear but here are some thoughts:
If you work for a company with 50 or more employees, your employer will provide you the 1095-B form that you provide the IRS on your 2015 tax return.
If you work for a company with less than 50 employees [including full time and fulltime equivalents] or are individually covered, your insurance company will provide you the 1095-B form.
As I understand it the employer and insurance companies have until the end of March to provide you the 1095-B form.
Technically, you have to file the insurance information with your tax return but you are probably okay to file without insurance information if you have had the same coverage for the entire year. Just make sure you keep in your records the insurance information when you receive it.
I am going to assume most of you have had insurance and not going to get into if you had gaps in coverage or insurance that doesn’t comply with ACA.
Consult your accountant before filing your return. I welcome any comments.
