Employer Services & Compliance Webinar Series | Rules on Creating Classes and Contributions

Wednesday, August 21, 2019   

Date: Wednesday, August 21, 2019
Time: 9:30AM – 10:30AM

Employers have discretion when structuring employee benefits plans and may make distinctions among employee populations regarding access to benefits and the level of benefits offered. However, employer’s discretion is tempered by the various federal regulations that, when followed, prevent discriminatory practices.
This webinar will provide a better understanding of:

  • Rules for setting different contribution strategies for employee groups
  • HIPAA nondiscrimination requirements
  • Bona fide employment-based classifications
  • How plans may treat distinct groups of similarly situated individuals differently
  • Two IRS nondiscrimination tests: the eligibility test and the benefits test
  • Federal regulations: Age Discrimination in Employment Act, Americans with Disabilities Act and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964
Join Sara Simkins for an overview of federal regulations and guidance covering how to develop compliant, nondiscriminatory employee benefits programs.
