ACA Settings

To confirm the configured measurement periods are accurately tracking employees' hours of service.

The Measurement Period is the period during which you track employees' hours of service. The hours worked during this period will determine whether an employee is considered "full-time" qualified during the subsequent stability period. Ongoing employees are tracked using a standard measurement period and new hires are tracked using an initial measurement period.

Each configured measurement period being used to track employees' hours of service must be 'active'.
