AOL recently announced that it was cutting employee benefits and gave Obamacare as the reason for the move.
Internet giant AOL, one of the nation's earliest Internet companies, announced a change in how the company pays out contributions to 401k plans in an effort to reduce spending.
Instead of matching employee contributions to the retirement savings plan on a monthly basis, going forward AOL will pay out a single, annual, lump-sum payment at the end of the year. This means that any employee who leaves the company before that lump-sum payout is applied will not get the matching payment.
Explaining the change, Chief Executive Officer Tim Armstrong said, "Obamacare is an additional $7.1 million expense for us as a company. We have to decide whether to pass that expense to employees or cut other benefits."
AOL owns the websites Huffington Post and AOLNews and still hosts millions of email accounts.
