In a surprise announcement, the Obama Administration has decided to delay the effective date of the Affordable Care Act’s employer mandate known as the employer responsibility provisions or “pay or play.” The delay appears to be a result of concerns raised in the business community that there was not enough time to implement changes necessary to comply with the new requirements.

The announced delay pushes the effective date back to January 1, 2015.
