The Affordable Care Act requires employers to provide to employees a written notice about public health exchanges (now called Health Insurance Marketplaces).  The Department of Labor issued a frequently asked question today confirming that employers subject to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) should provide the notice by October 1, 2013, but there is no fine or penalty under the law for failing to provide the notice.  The Department previously released temporary guidance (Technical Release 2013-02) regarding the notice and provided two model notices:  a model notice for employers who offer a group health plan and a model notice for employers who do not offer health coverage.
