Question about Leaves & Accommodations

We have an employee who is no longer physically capable of performing her job. We have tried to accommodate her by giving her extra time off and reducing her hours from full-time to part-time. Unfortunately, her condition has not improved and it’s affecting her overall job performance. We are at the point where we may need to let her go. Is there anything else we need to do?

Answer from Aimee, one of our HR Pros:

IRS Delays Reporting By Employers of FTE Numbers for 2015

On December 28, 2015, the IRS issued Notice 2016-4, which provides a two month extension for ACA reporting by employers and insurance carriers, given the need for employers, carriers and vendors to comply with the complex requirements. The employer’s deadline for providing the 1095-C forms containing information regarding medical coverage offerings to Full-Time and eligible employees is now extended to March 31, 2016.

Money Matters - Gift Cards for Employees

I want to give my employees $25 holiday gift cards. Is this acceptable? Is there anything I need to know before doing so?

Answer from Jenny, one of our HR Pros:

Giving out gift cards is a great way to show your appreciation. Keep in mind, though, that the value of the gift cards would have to be reported as wages.
