The recently enacted Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015 repeals Section 18A of the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 (the “FLSA). The repealed provision, which was added by Section 1511 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, would have required employers with more than 200 full-time employees to automatically enroll new employees (and continue enrollment of existing employees) in a health benefits plan offered through the employer. Prior to its repeal, enforcement of Section 18A of the FLSA had been delayed pending issuance of implementing regulations by the U.S. Department of Labor.
