Our Latest Whitepaper: Harnessing the Power of Supplemental Unemployment Benefit Plans

December 1st, 2016|By Jeff Bennett

Supplemental Unemployment Benefit Plans (SUB) can be extremely beneficial for you and your employees. SUB plans provide compensation to employees in addition to state unemployment benefits during periods of layoff, and if designed correctly, are not subject to FICA or FUTA taxes. Pre-funding SUB plans with Davis Bacon or state prevailing wage fringes via a trust fund can provide substantial tax benefits to employers in addition to the FICA savings.

For employees, SUB plans can transform a stressful layoff into a welcome respite, generating peace of mind and employer loyalty.

Although SUB plans can be beneficial for employers in any industry, our latest whitepaper focuses on the construction industry and specifically merit shop construction companies that are subject to prevailing wage rules under the Davis-Bacon Act or state prevailing wage laws.

If you have additional questions please do not hesitate to contact us or download our whitepapers – “Harnessing the Power of Supplemental Unemployment Benefit Plans” and “Working the Fringe.”

Please also view our short animated video, to see how constructing a bona fide fringe benefit plan, can move prevailing wage dollars out of payroll and reduce associated costs. Increase profits. Submit more competitive bids. Build employee loyalty.
