Employer provided qualified and non-qualified deferred compensation, and other fringe benefits, are a major concern for employers
Qualified Retirement Plans
Pension plans, 401(k) plans, 403(b) plans, and the like are controlled by ERISA, the federal pension law. These plans are regulated by extraordinarily complex rules enforced by the Internal Revenue Service, the U.S. Department of Labor, and the PBGC (Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation).
Harvey & Battey can advise you on the design and implementation of the right plan for your company. We can also represent your company on disputes with the IRS and the Department of Labor on qualification and enforcement issues. Harvey & Battey also represents employees in disputes with their employers regarding qualified plan benefits.
Upon the sale or merger of a business, the disposition of qualified plans creates special issues. Harvey & Battey can advise businesses on how these plans should be managed in business mergers, acquisitions, and restructuring.
