Retirement Plans: The Employee Perspective

What is the employee perspective on employer-sponsored retirement plans?

Qualified employer-sponsored retirement plans can provide a number of tax and nontax benefits to employees. The employee
perspective on these plans should certainly consider the obvious tax deferral and retirement savings benefits. Additionally,
however, employees should consider various strategies to optimize their benefits. For example, employees will approach their
retirement plans most effectively when they take full advantage of employer-matched savings and by remaining with a particular company at least until vesting has occurred. In some cases, moreover, the advantages and disadvantages of borrowing from employer-sponsored plans should be evaluated.

Paid Family Leave: New York State Addresses the Impact of Elder Caregiving in the Workplace

New York State is one of the first states in the nation to enact a paid family leave benefit law and to expand the definition of family caregiving to include elder care. Governor Cuomo’s Paid Family Leave Benefits Law applies to all businesses, regardless of size, and will be phased in over the next four years beginning in January 2018.

The Paid Family Leave benefit provides for a phase in, over the next four years, of up to 12 weeks of paid leave time to care for a family member with a serious health condition, which includes caring for a parent, parent-in-law, grandparent, spouse, domestic partner, child or grandchild. However, the benefit will only provide 50% of the employee’s salary (phased in to 67%) up to a maximum cap based on the New York State average weekly wage. For example, when the benefit takes effect in January 2018, the maximum weekly benefit will be capped at $652.96.
