Fixed Fee Deductions -- Can It Be Discriminatory?

"401(k) Plan has no HCE or Key participants.

Plan allocates TPA fees among all participants in equal amounts.

So those with large accounts will have less than 1% taken out, but a new participant will have 20% taken out.

This doesn't feel right but I am looking for an argument to give the plan sponsor and wasn't sure if there was some kind of discrimination issue.

The one who makes this decision is getting less than 1%. Maybe it's simply that that is not 'reasonable'."
