The auto-enrollment mandate was a provision added to the Fair Labor Standards Act which would have required employers with 200+ full-time employees to automatically enroll new full-time employees in one of the employer’s health benefit plans. In February 2012, the Department of Labor delayed the implementation of the regulation. On 11/2/2015, President Obama signed H.R. 1314, the “Bipartisan Act of 2015,” which among other items, officially repealed the auto-enrollment mandate.
