Wouldn’t it be nice if employees never missed a day of work or ever took a leave? Until then (when pig’s fly), one of the most difficult administrative issues employee benefits managers face is when employees have some kind of break-in-service that effects eligibility. Many different rules can apply in these circumstances. Employers may have to consider FMLA coverage requirements, ACA-related waiting periods and re-hire rules, and more. Plan eligibility could even be different depending on if the employer is using the monthly measurement or the look-back measurement method to define full-time status. In this webinar, we will help you sort out how to handle these “break-in-service” situations.
