Expert Panel Tackles Liability & the Affordable Care Act at July Entrepreneur Road Map

August 7th, 2014

Dealing with the many different types of insurance available – commercial, workers compensation, life, auto, and liability – can be overwhelming at times. When it comes to planning any business, however, owners must understand the obligations they have to employees and the potential risk that they face.

Last month, at the WDCEP’s July Entrepreneur Road Map event, the panel of experts discussed some of the basics of business insurance, and the changes that many employers may encounter due to the Affordable Care Act.

Alexandra Piotrowski, an Economic Development Specialist at the US Small Business Administration, walked attendees through the Affordable Care Act and what exactly it means for small businesses. Piotrowski explained that the impact of the Health Care act depends on two factors: the size of the company and the wage of the employees.


Arthur Slade, an Insurance Operations Specialist of the Department of Insurance, Securities and Banking (DISB) went over the basics of business insurance, from Workers’ Compensation to Business Property and Liability Insurance. Slade advised all insurance consumers to shop around and double check with the DISB to make sure you are protected.
