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:
- Charts and diagrams to simplify complex controlled group analysis
- Complete analysis of the many recent cases and trends in leased employee and exclusion issues, complete with updated suggested plan language
- Charts comparing all three attribution systems used for qualified plans, so you can find the applicable attribution rules for any situation at a glance.
- 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.
