Getting Started With ACA Compliance

The Zenefits Affordable Care Act (ACA) Compliance app automates much of the work for companies by taking into account their existing benefits and employee data, so it’s best for all of a company's information to be in a single place. If a company has not yet implemented Ben Admin or Ben Connect with Zenefits, using the ACA Compliance app will require frequent manual intervention on part of the company, which is labor-intensive and prone to error.
