By CAROLYN WONG | Published: SEPTEMBER 6, 2013

Under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, employers covered by the FLSA must provide written notice of the Health Insurance Marketplace to all current employees by October 1, 2013.  Thereafter, the written notice must be provided to new employees at the time of hire.

Sample “Hawaii” notices are available at The Hawaii samples meet Department of Labor requirements, and have been tailored to employees in Hawaii by including information about the Hawaii Prepaid Health Care Act and Hawaii’s Health Connector, which is the Health Insurance Marketplace in our state.  Employers can use either sample notices posted on the Department of Labor website or the Hawaii notices.

Terri O’Connell prepared the Hawaii sample notices and concentrates her practice in the area of health care law.
