I wrote a few weeks ago about The Little-Known ObamaCare COBRA Catch-22. I thought this issue was so important that I asked AOL Jobs readers for help. I asked you to sign a petition I started to alert the President to this issue. I asked you to tell the President to close the gap. And you came through.
Not only did you sign the petition, but some of you took action to help.
Members of the National Employment Lawyers association contacted the
Department of Labor to ask for a fix. Forbes found out about this issue
and wrote a piece about it. And it worked.
Read my article at AOL Jobs to find out how you can switch from COBRA to ACA until July 1 and how COBRA notices are changing. Thanks so much to everyone who helped with this important change.
Have a general question about employment law? Want to share a story? I welcome all comments and questions. I can't give legal advice here about specific situations but will be glad to discuss general issues and try to point you in the right direction. If you need legal advice, contact an employment lawyer in your state. Remember, anything you post here will be seen publicly, and I will comment publicly on it. It will not be confidential. Govern yourself accordingly. If you want to communicate with me confidentially as Donna Ballman, Florida lawyer rather than as Donna Ballman, blogger, my firm's website is here.
