Benefits and Executive Compensation
Swanson Bernard acts as a benefits consultant or Affordable Care Act advisor to those facing dilemmas of benefits and executive compensation. As an employee benefits law firm, we regularly tackle the thorny questions arising under the Family Medical Leave Act (“FMLA”), Affordable Care Act (“ACA”), U.S. Tax Code, American Disability Act, non-discrimination acts, wage and hour and other employment related issues. We also structure modern day deferred compensation arrangements for business executives and professionals who face significant income tax exposure. The depth of our tax attorneys in terms of training and experience is why we view deferred compensation as a major tax advantage opportunity for highly compensated individuals.
