Who's the Employer?

Answers are provided by S. Derrin Watson, JD, APM

Second Edition of Who's the Employer

(Posted August 31, 2000)

Question 58: I know your book's been out for a couple of years now-- are you planning to come out with a second edition?

Answer: I'm delighted you asked. The answer is yes, and I expect it to be out by the end of October.

Like the first edition, it covers employee/independent contractor, leased employee, shared employee, controlled group, common control, affiliated service group, and related party issues. However, the second edition will include 25% more material than the first, including:

  1. Charts and diagrams to simplify complex controlled group analysis
  2. Complete analysis of the many recent cases and trends in leased employee and exclusion issues, complete with updated suggested plan language
  3. Charts comparing all three attribution systems used for qualified plans, so you can find the applicable attribution rules for any situation at a glance.
  4. Over 400 examples illustrating every facet of employee/employer/aggregation issues.


I am offering a pre publication discount. If you order before September 15, 2000 (click), you will receive the new book for $105, plus $10 shipping. That's $25 off the regular price.

Alternatively, if you need answers immediately, I still have a few copies of the first edition available. For just $25 more, ($140 total, including shipping), I will send you the first edition now, and the second edition as soon as it is off the press.


Important notice:

Answers are provided as general guidance on the subjects covered in the question and are not provided as legal advice to the questioner or to readers. Any legal issues should be reviewed by your legal counsel to apply the law to the particular facts of this and similar situations.

The law in this area changes frequently. Answers are believed to be correct as of the posting dates shown. The completeness or accuracy of a particular answer may be affected by changes in the law (statutes, regulations, rulings, court decisions, etc.) that occur after the date on which a particular Q&A is posted.
