The use of the seasonal employee override feature will only affect the employer’s classification as an
applicable large employer. It has no effect on individual eligibility.
The seasonal employee exception applies if, during the prior calendar year, (1) an employer’s full-time
employee workforce (including FTEs) exceeded 50 employees on only 120 or fewer days, and (2)
seasonal workers were the only reason the 50-employee threshold was exceeded during this period.
This utility allows an employer to classify an employee as being seasonal even if the above rule does
not apply. The IRS has provided guidance on rules that may apply even if the employee works more
than 120 days.
