“Restaurants employ 1.4 million Californians – nearly 10 percent of the workforce in state,” California Restaurant Association (CRA) President + CEO Jot Condie said. “Since the law was adopted, we’ve worked with our members to help them understand the requirements and their effects on businesses. Today’s ruling eliminates the uncertainty surrounding the law and we will continue to work with the Governor and legislators to ease implementation for restaurants in the state.”
Based on the decision, individuals are required to obtain health insurance, and employers with 50 or more full-time equivalents to offer affordable health insurance to full-time employees and their dependents or pay penalties.
The CRA is working with Legal Center attorneys to hold a webinar for California restaurant operators in July, with details coming. Updates with analysis of the law as it affects California, including what it means for menu labeling will be issued soon.
