Employee Benefits Answer Book.

Employee Benefits Answer Book by Cynthia M. Combe, Esq. and Gerard J. Talbot, Esq., Panel Publishers, Inc., 36 West 44th Street, New York, NY 10036, (212)354-4545, $79.

This reference explores employee benefit laws following last year's demise of Internal Revenue Code Section 89. The 442 pages are organized in a question and answer format addressing such complex issues facing employee welfare benefit plan designers and administrators such as: How does the IRS view the practice of using income voluntarily from employees' salaries as a contribution to cafeteria plans? Can employers make severance pay conditional upon an employee's waiver of rights under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act? Does ERISA pre-empt state laws requiring certain benefits in employee welfare benefit plans? These questions are among 750+ answered by the authors. In addition to the Internal Revenue Code, the authors point out other federal laws affecting employee benefits including: The Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA), the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1985 (COBRA), the Health Maintenance Organization Act of 1973 (HMO Act), the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 (ADEA), the Civil Rights Act of 1964, especially Title VII, and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA). A full chapter on funding alternatives for benefit plans are included and full citations to the Internal Revenue Code, other statutes and case law are provided as well.
