Sierra and the ACA

Affordable Care Act Time and Attendance ACA

*New CMS PBJ XML export reporting feature available!  Call for details!  800.822.0973

Navigating the legislation behind the new Affordable Care Act can be a confusing process. Having a secure, accurate time & attendance system in place is step one in guaranteeing that you will be prepared for an audit, with the added benefit of on-the-fly monitoring of your staff to remain ACA compliant.

Sierra can help you in three main areas:

– Run pre-configured large employer “Compliance” and full time “Look-Back” ACA reports.

– Set “max hours” policies. Prevent employees from working over xx number of hours.

– Ability to run “staff hire date” reports and to set task reminders for employee “on-boarding”. This is a useful tool to remind you when an employee is approaching their mandated health insurance benefit notification within the legal window of hire date time.

At Sierra we make these reports easy for our clients.   With each TimeMaster Summit implementation we configure five Affordable Care Act specific reports.  You will be all set to start pulling ACA analytics once you fire up your new TimeMaster Summit install.  Download a PDF overview of these reports below or to the left.

Here are the reports we help you configure and save:

Affordable Care Act Report:  Great to use for your mandated “look back” periods and to monitor your workforce trends.  This report provides a comprehensive view of your staff and over/under minimum hour presets, broken out in current, 3 month and 6 month increments.

Approaching Overtime Report:  Delivers a snapshot of your current workers and the week’s hours worked, allowing you to be nimble with staffing and scheduling changes

-Overtime Hours Report:  Diving into analytics?  This report is for you!  View overtime hours by employee by pay period with cost breakdown.

-Summary of Overtime Hours Report:  This report contains a listing of overtime hours and extended costs associated by your particular pay codes.

-Summary of Overtime Hours Report V2:  This handy report lists overtime hours broken down by department.

Don’t see what you need for analytics?  We can certainly help configure reporting for your specific needs!

*Currently the ACA legislation only applies to employers with more than 50 employees. Having a time & attendance system in place, adhering to “best practices” is a great idea regardless. Options vary, contact our Sales team to find out what is available for your system.
