Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
1) If no healthcare is provided to any employee, then you do not have to provide it to the office worker.
2) If you do provide healthcare to any worker, you must treat all employees the same and provide them all the opportunity for coverage.
3) As a small employer, you are not bound under the Affordable Care Act to be mandated to provide insurance.
4) There is no FL or federal law mandating you offer employees any sick or vacation days. Granting sick pay or vacation pay days to employees is purely the discretion of the employer and not required by any laws.
