Obama’s Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has sued New Jersey–based Honeywell, as well as Orion Energy Systems and Flambeau. The latter two enterprises are headquartered in Wisconsin. These companies’ efforts to follow Obamacare have landed them in federal court. In Obama’s America, even cooperative companies face federal wrath.
“The fact that the EEOC sued is shocking to our members,” Business Roundtable vice president Maria Ghazal told Reuters, which broke this story. “They don’t understand why a plan in compliance with the ACA is the target of a lawsuit. . . . This is a major issue to our members.”
In a November 14 letter to Health and Human Services secretary Sylvia Burwell, Treasury secretary Jack Lew, and Labor secretary Thomas Perez, Business Roundtable president John Engler wrote, “If employers believe that complying with the letter of the law can still result in enforcement actions, it will send a chilling effect across the country.”
