Affordable Care Act
When it comes to the Affordable Care Act, we are the clear leader. In 2006, we were retained by Governor Romney's administration as its outside counsel for the then-historic Massachusetts health care reform law. We, along with the Heritage Foundation and MIT economist Jon Gruber, advised Gov. Romney and his Secretary of Health and Human Services on every aspect of the administration's bill. The head of our Employee Benefits & Executive Compensation Practice subsequently testified before the Senate Finance Committee in connection with the legislation that ultimately became the ACA. We have served as the go-to source on ACA compliance for the American Staffing Association and have worked closely with it on advising its members on ACA compliance.
Our job is to help your business achieve its goals. We have represented national and international staffing and outsourcing companies alike in all aspects of their corporate life cycles, from inception to exit and everything in between.
Employment, Labor & Benefits
We are a source management and HR officials can turn to for advice on the full range of employment issues, including policies, workplace issues, employment agreements, employee mobility, compensation and benefits plans, employee disputes, and compliance with federal and state regulations.
Our immigration attorneys can guide you through securing work visas to bring employees to the United States or help you secure a US visa for yourself as an accomplished individual or investor. Our Immigration Practice is known for tenaciously representing companies and accomplished individuals in routine and extraordinary US immigration matters.
Lawsuits and investigations can have a significant impact on the bottom line and your reputation in the marketplace. The litigation team at Mintz Levin is there to help you manage these risks before they occur, but in the event they do, we work with you to find the best solution for your business. We have successfully represented clients in matters including breach of contract disputes, supply chain disputes, class action lawsuits, employment disputes, and Foreign Corrupt Practice Act compliance investigations.
Privacy & Security
Data privacy and security issues have become an everyday business problem in the staffing and outsourcing industry. We can counsel you regarding the requirements of privacy and security laws, including HIPAA, HITECH, the Communications Act, the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, the EU Data Directive, state privacy laws, state data breach laws, and privacy-related common law. In addition to assisting you with the implementation of mandated policies under federal, state, and local privacy laws, we can manage the disclosure of any data breaches and losses of protected health information as well as defend you in civil or criminal enforcement actions.
