In this special episode, Seyfarth Partner Diane Dygert and our very own co-host Sarah Touzalin delve into the intricacies of identifying long-term part-time employees, the nuanced vesting rules applicable to long-term part-time employees, the newly introduced concept of former long-term part-time employees, and what, if anything, plan sponsors and administers need to do for 2024. Grab your cup of coffee and tune in for a lively discussion of these proposed rules!
