Human resource professionals have been at the forefront of implementing the requirements of health care reform at workplaces across the United States. The June 28, 2012, U.S. Supreme Court decision upholding the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act leaves no doubt that insurers and employers will move ahead to implement the law fully. The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) will remain supportive of HR professionals as they continue to implement requirements of the act.
While SHRM was still analyzing the court’s ruling immediately after it was announced, the ambiguity over the constitutionality of the law largely has been settled for the immediate future. SHRM will continue to help its members understand the law and the timeline for implementing its requirements. SHRM’s online Health Care Reform Resource Page, which provides tools and resources, will be updated for HR professionals as the full impact of the decision becomes clear.
Health care coverage is a critical workplace benefit to millions of employees and an important tool in recruiting and retaining a talented workforce for employers.
SHRM supports comprehensive reform that lowers health care costs, improves access to high-quality and affordable coverage, and strengthens the employer-based health care system. SHRM will continue to work with the Obama administration, Congress, federal agencies and other key stakeholders to continue to address these health care reform objectives.
SHRM is the world’s largest association devoted to human resource management. Representing about 260,000 members in more than 140 countries, the Society serves the needs of HR professionals and advances the interests of the HR profession. Founded in 1948, SHRM has more than 575 affiliated chapters within the United States and subsidiary offices in China and India. Visit SHRM Online at www.shrm.org.
