In just under one week, DDIFO will get its 2015 member meetings program underway with the Mid Atlantic District Meeting being held at the Doubletree by Hilton Newark Airport Hotel next Thursday, February 12. The meeting will begin with lunch at noon and will conclude at 3:00 PM. The program, Navigating the Uncharted Waters of the Employer Mandate, will feature Attorney Pat McGovern, an expert in employment law and healthcare requirements as well as a partner in the distinguished law firm, Genova Burns. Many provisions of the Affordable Care Act take effect this year, so it is imperative that franchise owners understand their obligations under the law to avoid unnecessary – and costly – penalties and fines. Registration is available here on the DDIFO website.
