The Atlanta Journal-Constitution    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
2014 can't come soon enough for restaurant workers and may be coming too quickly for their bosses. That's when the federal Affordable Care Act, which was passed by Congress in 2010, phases in one of the most controversial parts of the health care law: the mandate that employers of 50 or more full-time workers offer them health care coverage.
