settlements and backpay

If an employer settles a claim that arises out of an employee not being paid for the classification of duties being performed and the settlement does not characterize the payment as backpay, IRS guidance says the settlement payment is wages for employment tax purposes. Is the settlement payment going to be treated as wages for which the employer has to pay additional pension contributions?
