Employee Benefit Plans
Employers offer a vast array of benefits such as medical, pension and profit sharing arrangements to attract and retain quality employees and maintain a competitive advantage; similar benefits may also be provided pursuant to a collective bargaining agreement. However, Department of Labor, Internal Revenue Service and other regulatory agency requirements related to these benefits are often confusing and complex, and noncompliance may result in unforeseen penalties and unexpected repercussions.
