New York City real estate agents have long been classified as independent contractors rather than employees of the firms they work for.
But since the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in late June in favor of the Affordable Care Act, President Obama’s health-care reform, that distinction has become more crucial than ever.
The law’s much-discussed “individual mandate,” slated to take effect in 2014, will require all Americans to have health insurance or pay a fine. It also requires businesses with more than 50 employees to provide coverage or pay a similar fee — but while full-time employees of brokerages count toward that number, brokers don’t.
The Court’s decision, then, will have significant ramifications for the brokerage community everywhere. Indeed, going without insurance, as many agents currently do, will be much more difficult come 2014.
The real estate industry here is sorting through exactly what the law will mean for brokers and firms, and what sorts of new options for buying insurance will be made available to agents. And since the President was re-elected this fall, the law likely survives.
