Why the Employer Mandate Will Be Repealed or Amended, Again

According to a 2013 Gallup poll of small businesses: 
  • 41 percent held off hiring new employees, 
  • 19 percent reduced their workforce and 
  • 18 percent reduced employees to part-time work. 
Similarly, a survey from the International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans found that: 
  • 19 percent of small employers were reducing hiring in order to avoid the employer mandate, while 
  • 15 percent were adjusting their workers' hours so that fewer employees would be subject to the mandate.
