What Employers Need to Know About
Cafeteria Plan Nondiscrimination Rules

Tuesday, March 14, 2017 | 2:00 p.m. ET / 11:00 a.m. PT

A cafeteria plan is a written plan - maintained by an employer for employees - that must meet requirements of the Internal Revenue Code Section 125 regulations. A cafeteria plan provides participants with an opportunity to receive certain benefits on a pretax basis. To comply with Section 125, a cafeteria plan must satisfy structural requirements and a set of nondiscrimination rules. This webinar will help employers understand their responsibilities under the nondiscrimination rules.
 
This webinar will:

  • Review the basics of a cafeteria plan
  • Explain the key terms used in the nondiscrimination tests
  • Discuss the nondiscrimination tests
  • Discuss the safe harbors for cafeteria plans
  • Describe testing frequency
  • Discuss the consequences of failing nondiscrimination testing
  • Describe best practices in cafeteria plan design, testing, and taking corrective actions

This 60-minute intermediate level webinar will help employers understand cafeteria plan nondiscrimination rules.
