The National Restaurant Association is urging Congress and the White House to ensure that the Affordable Care Act's mandates, taxes and penalties don't slow job creation. The ACA will have a particularly profound effect on restaurants because of the unique nature of the restaurant industry. Restaurants are highly labor-intensive, with low profits per employee, significant numbers of part-time employees, and a young and mobile workforce. 

The National Restaurant Association has worked with federal agencies to provide some flexiblity for employers in ACA regulations, but only Congress can make some changes to the law. These start with four key areas: addressing the 30-hour full-time definition, employer reporting, the automatic-enrollment mandate, the small-business definition, and the definition of seasonal employment.
