Frontline Helps School Districts Address Affordable Care Act
EXTON, Pa. --(Business Wire)--
In response to new federal healthcare regulations, Frontline
Technologies recently launched several initiatives around the Aesop
substitute placement and absence management system to help school
districts track and determine employee eligibility for healthcare
New regulations under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act
(PPACA) require employers, including school districts, to provide
coverage to employees working an average of 30 or more hours a week.
Set to go into effect January 1, 2014, the regulations commonly known as
"Obamacare" have districts looking for an effective way to track
part-time employee hours, particularly for substitute teachers, and
determine eligibility for health insurance.
In response to this need, Frontline Technologies, the creator of the Aesop
substitute placement and absence anagement system, has released a
targeted, customizable report to all 3,200 of its school district
customers. The new report allows districts to easily see the days or
hours scheduled to work for each substitute per week. Districts can get
the report on demand or schedule it to be delivered weekly or monthly.
"We've been hearing a lot of districts ask about tracking employee
hours in preparation for the Affordable Care Act," said Larry Foxx,
Director of Client Services. "The new report should make it a lot easier
for districts to collect and review the data they need to track this
Another Aesop report allows districts to track the total number of days
and hours a substitute has been scheduled to work in any given time
period. This report could be useful in determining a substitute's
eligibility based on a certain look-back period. In addition to these
reports, Frontline is also evaluating further functionality within Aesop
to assist districts with the mandates.
Also from Frontline, the VeriTime
time and attendance system captures the actual time worked by hourly
employees, helping districts track hours worked by part-time employees.
Technologies is focused on creating innovative web-based software
for K-12 school districts. Frontline revolutionized the K-12 market with
Aesop, a breakthrough automated substitute placement and absence
management system that serves more than 3,000 school districts.
Frontline has continued its development of innovative solutions with
