The Internal Revenue Service released a proposed rule (PDF) for the employer shared responsibility provisions of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, a rule that effectively implements the employer insurance mandate of the law.

Scheduled for official publication Jan. 2, the 144-page proposed rule includes details (PDF) on what constitutes a full- or part-time employee, payments required for not providing affordable minimum coverage and calculating the size of employers that must comply with the provisions.
