CalSavers Retirement Program for Farm Labor Contractors
August 4, 2020
Large employers (over 100 employees) without a retirement plan for employees will be required by California law to register for CalSavers, a state-sponsored retirement plan, and facilitate their employees access by September 30, 2020 (the original deadline of June 30 was delayed due to COVID-19). Deadlines for smaller employers will be phased in over three years. Employers who sponsor their own qualified retirement plan are exempt.
Learn what this new state-sponsored plan is all about – your requirements as an employer, and the impacts on and options available to employees. We’ll also explore EZ$SAVINGS4U (unaffiliated with CalSavers): an easy to implement option for employers concerned about costs and liabilities associated with sponsoring a retirement plan. Assembled by three professionals with over 100 years of combined experience in employee benefit planning, their approach may appeal to employers of seasonal workers with high turnover rates and variable hour employment.
