On-site medical care. Pet insurance. Student loan repayment programs. Egg freezing assistance. Yoga classes, hair styling, and massage therapy offered in the workplace. In today’s competitive labor market, with the U.S. unemployment rate at the lowest it has been in decades, employers are being forced to find new and creative ways to attract and retain talent. Instead of increasing wages, companies are offering a variety of non-traditional employee benefits to fill open positions and improve employee experience and engagement.
This growing list of non-traditional employee benefits brings with it a host of legal compliance considerations. Are employers properly taxing these benefits? Are these benefits subject to ERISA, and if so, what kind of compliance is necessary? Are employers avoiding the potential traps of HIPAA and other legal requirements?
This program will dive into some of the interesting benefits offered by employers in today’s workplaces and will identify the top compliance issues that need to be considered by employers and the attorneys who advise them.
