The Small Business Administration (SBA) and Small Business Majority have launched the Affordable Care Act 101 weekly webinar series.

Each week, SBA representatives will walk through the key pieces of the law so that small business owners can understand the facts and make the most informed decisions they can about providing health insurance for their employees.

This free series will focus on both federal and state provisions to help small business owners understand how the law will affect them. Topics being discussed include: Small business tax credits (available to businesses and tax-exempt non-profits) who’s eligible for them and how to claim them; marketplace updates; shared responsibility; cost containment; tools and resources are available for small businesses interested in learning more about the law; and a question and answer period will follow.

The Affordable Care Act 101 webinars take place every Thursday from now through the opening of the marketplaces in October. Below are the registration links for the next four presentations.
