under the ACA (Obamacare) in 2014 employers with 50 or more FTE must offer and provide insurance. My question is if they offer but EE refuses it is there still a penalty to the ER

If the employer makes him an offer that he must refuse, then it's refused under duress and in violation of the law. The employer is required to make him an offer that he can't refuse, as the Godfather would say.

There are guidelines that define "affordable" insurance. If the insurance is deemed to be "unaffordable" AND the EE goes to an exchange for insurance AND the EE receives a subsidy to purchase that insurance, the ER has penalty exposure. If the EE opts out because, for example, they receive coverage through their spouse, the ER would not be penalized in that case.
