Fair Share Contribution Violations

Fair Share Contribution Audit Attorney

An audit notice by the Fair Share Contribution Unit of the Massachusetts Division of Unemployment Assistance (DUA) should not be ignored. Many businesses that have decided to provide medical coverage in response to the Massachusetts health care reform "Fair Share Law" are having their coverages and contribution practices audited by DUA. An auditor's assessment may lead to the demand of substantial back payments of fair share contributions, plus interest and penalties. An audit is tiresome and involves endless hours of preparation and dedicated resources with no guaranteed outcome. After a Fair Share assessment by DUA, businesses have two options: pay the assessment or appeal. Attorney Mucci has the experience to guide your business through the audit process and appeal.

Fair Share Contribution Appeals Attorney

Appealing a DUA auditor's assessment may also prove valuable. DUA will indicate on the Determination of Liability the reasons for the finding of liability and indicate any amounts owed. Attorney Mucci is a seasoned litigator who understands the Fair Share laws, standards and the appellate process. He is capable of providing you with an honest assessment of your legal and administrative options, and he also has the expertise to build a case for appeal.

Attorney Mucci understands that preparation is the key to a successful appeal. He has established a network of accountants who can assist in the preparation of your case, and be available to testify at your hearing. A business proves its case in front of a hearing examiner by introducing documents and eyewitness testimony supporting its position and refuting DUA's documents and witnesses. Attorney Mucci focuses preparation on satisfying the Fair Share contribution primary and secondary tests. Using the Determination of Liability as an outline, Attorney Mucci has the skills and determination needed to compile supporting documents, identify and prepare witnesses for a hearing, and effectively present the case on your behalf.
With effective and efficient preparation, businesses can survive all phases of a DUA audit and appeal.
