(RIVERWOODS, ILL., March 9, 2000) Practical insights are featured in the
latest CCH 2000 U.S. Master Employee Benefits Guide from CCH
INCORPORATED (CCH), a leading provider of human resources and benefits law information.
This compact, authoritative and useful resource for anyone dealing with employee benefits
plans incorporates the latest benefits information based on recent regulations, rulings
and cases. (756 pages, $49. To order, call 1-800-248-3248, or purchase online at http://hr.cch.com.)
The fifth edition of the Guide offers up-to-date, hands-on information on health
care benefits, employee assistance plans (EAPs), disability benefits, worker's
compensation, life insurance, cafeteria plans, flexible spending arrangements, child and
dependent care programs, educational benefits, family leave and sick leave. Urgent issues
such as domestic partner coverage, alternative medicine, experimental treatments and paid
time off programs are given incisive coverage.
The CCH 2000 U.S. Master Employee Benefits Guide addresses employee benefits
law, communication, management, reporting and disclosure, and other compliance issues
including long-awaited IRS regulations on COBRA. Time-saving features include sample
benefits policies and compliance documents, checklists and worksheets.
While designed for the front line benefits professional, the Guide is also a
useful desktop reference for attorneys, accountants, consultants and librarians. It
functions as both a reliable source for quick answers and a gateway to in-depth research.
Cross-references to the Internal Revenue Code and Regulations, ERISA and its regulations
and CCH's in-depth human resources publications abound.
The new edition of the CCH 2000 U.S. Master Employee Benefits Guide features explanations of the many employee benefit changes
arising out of the Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997, along with details about 1998 law changes
due to recent legislation such as the Small Business Job Protection Act of 1996 and the
Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA). The 1997 interim
regulations on health care portability under HIPAA, an issue of ongoing importance for
employee benefits professionals, are also covered in the new edition.
