IFA applauds lawmakers for introducing employer mandate repeal bill


IFA Senior Vice President of Government Relations and Public Policy Judith Thorman released a statement on the introduction of the American Job Protection Act to repeal the job-killing employer mandate that was included in the president's $2.6 trillion Affordable Care Act. "The Affordable Care Act is anything but affordable for the franchising community. According to a study by the nonpartisan Hudson Institute, the employer mandate puts 3.2 million full-time jobs at risk in the franchise industry, and will add more than $6.4 billion in increased costs to franchise businesses, not including the cost of regulatory compliance."
