Multiple Employer Plans
Multiple employer plans (MEPs) exist in many forms. Historically, MEPs provided to members of an association and MEPs provided to employees of professional employer organizations (PEO) have been the dominant form of MEPs. Recently, significant attention has been placed on MEPs for unaffiliated employers. Examples of our experience include:
- Advice on the ongoing administration, fiduciary obligations, and plan documents of large association MEPs.
- Mergers and acquisition activity involving PEO MEPs.
- Advice on compliance with Internal Revenue Code requirements relating to MEPs and administrative errors involving MEPs.
- Advice on Department of Labor (DOL) investigations involving MEPs.
- Representing a coalition of unaffiliated MEP providers and advisors before the DOL.
