Free Series for Small Business Owners to Help Understand the Law


The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), together with the Small Business Majority (a national nonprofit advocacy organization), has launched theAffordable Care Act 101 Weekly Webinar Series. The webinars feature guidance on key pieces of the law for small business owners provided by SBA representatives, followed by a question and answer period.


Topics being discussed in the webinars include:


  • Small business tax credits—who is eligible and how to claim the credit;
  • Shared responsibility (also known as “pay or play”);
  • Cost containment; and
  • Tools and resources available for small businesses to learn more about the law.


The free series will take place every Thursday from now through the opening of the Health Insurance Exchanges (Marketplaces) in October.The first series of webinars will cover the same content; a second round of webinars featuring new content will be held later this fall.
