    The IRS announced in a revenue ruling that it will let taxpayers stick with the original $6,900 contribution limit for family coverage. 


    Quoted from SHRM Article: For HSA participants who had contributed the full $6,900 for the year and then withdrew $50 with earnings, "now you can put it back into the HSA if the HSA custodian accepts it," Sit explained. "If you decide to keep the $50 with earnings, you can go by the $6,850 limit and treat it as a normal withdrawal of excess contribution."

    Investigation finds nearly 250 workers with disabilities improperly paid by a company located in Illinois - The Department of Labor revoked their certification under Section 14 (c) of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).


    Section 14(c) of the FLSA is designed to offer more job opportunities for workers with disabilities when their disability affects their productive capacity for the work being performed. After applying for and receiving a certificate from the Department’s Wage and Hour Division (WHD), the employer may gauge their hourly workers’ productivity and calculate the appropriate sub-minimum wage as a percentage of the rate for experienced workers performing similar jobs in the area under the Section 14(c) provisions.
