The most common benefits that employers provide to employees are health coverage and retirement savings plans, and although the laws and regulations that apply to them are sometimes voluminous and cumbersome, there are many sources of explanation and clarification. But many employers also offer other types of benefits, known as “fringe benefits,” including cellphones, company cars, transportation and parking subsidies, educational assistance, and adoption assistance. The rules that apply to the various types of fringe benefits are scattered throughout laws, regulations, and informal guidance, and can be difficult to find, confusing, and sometimes surprising. Employers and employees alike may be blindsided and subject to increased taxes or other problems if the applicable fringe benefit rules are not followed. It is important for employers to understand what constitutes a fringe benefit, what rules apply, and where to find resources to assist with compliance.
Join Christine Williams, senior counsel at Perkins Coie, as she explains the rules and how to avoid problems when offering fringe benefits.
