SHRM’s Response to the Supreme Court Ruling on the Affordable Care Act
ALEXANDRIA, Va., June 28, 2012 — Human resource professionals have been at the forefront of implementing the requirements of health care reform at workplaces across the country. Today’s court decision upholding the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act leaves no doubt that insurers and employers will move ahead to fully implement the law. The Society for Human Resource Management will remain supportive of HR professionals as they continue implementing requirements of the act.
While SHRM is still analyzing the court’s ruling, 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 our health care reform objectives.
