Employee Benefits Law

Resources in this category:
   An Employer's Guide to Employee Benefits (January 1, 2004) (Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development)
This Guide discusses "employee benefit plans, including both pension (i.e., retirement) and welfare (i.e., health, disability, death) benefit plans." Also includes non-qualified retirement plans, stock-related long-term incentive programs, other forms of fringe benefits, civil enforcement and remedies, and appendices. Fourth edition, January 2004. 170 pages. Warning: this may take a long time to load.
   Employee Benefit Plan Abusive Tax Transactions - Listed Transactions (U.S. Department of the Treasury, Internal Revenue Service)
"Regulations provide that a taxpayer must disclose certain transactions know as "listed transactions" by filing a disclosure statement (Form 8886) with its tax return. A "listed transaction" is a transaction that is the same as or substantially similar to one that the IRS has determined to be a tax avoidance transaction and identified by IRS notice or other form of published guidance. The parties who participate in listed transactions may be required to disclose the transaction as required by the regulations, register the transaction with the IRS, or maintain lists of investors in the transactions and provide the list to the IRS on request."
   Employee Benefits Institute of America (Thomson Reuters)
See http://www.ebia.com/WeeklyArchives for subject classified articles from free weekly newsletters since 2000.
   Federal Agency Q&As (ABA Joint Committee on Employee Benefits)
"Each year, the [committee] meets with officials of federal agencies in Washington, D.C., to discuss issues of interest to employee benefits practitioners. The question and answer transcripts listed below are based on these informal discussions between private sector representatives of the JCEB and agency officials."

"It is understood that the reports will be made available to the public."

Archives begin in 2000. 2005 Q&As include those with Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, Department of Labor, Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, Health and Human Services, Internal Revenue Service, and Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation.

Agencies vary from year to year.

   Warning Signs that Pension Contributions are Being Misused (U.S. Department of Labor, Employee Benefits Security Administration)
"An anti-fraud campaign by the Department of Labor uncovered a small fraction of employers who abused employee contributions by either using the money for corporate purposes or holding on to the money too long. Here are 10 warning signs that your pension contributions are being misused."
   Wex: Pension Law (Legal Information Institute)
