New CCH Guide Navigates The Crossroads Of Employment And Taxation

(RIVERWOODS, ILL., AUGUST 30, 1999) – The tax, financial and legal implications involved in labor and employment actions can be immense, and the best decisions are made when the people structuring labor/employment strategies and settlements, or managing related issues, understand both the labor statutes and the tax ramifications, according to CCH INCORPORATED (CCH), a leading provider of tax and labor law information. To provide employment, labor and tax professionals with authoritative analysis of the complex interrelationship between employment law and tax, CCH has introduced the Practical Guide to Tax Issues in Employment, a valuable reference that addresses critical issues and strategies for advisors representing both employers and employees.

The CCH Practical Guide to Tax Issues in Employment concisely explains the interrelationship of employment law and tax, enabling those involved in employment and labor law to understand the basic principles of income taxation in the context in which they work. The Guide also presents an authoritative explanation of the legal implications of particular causes of action and discusses other employment law issues for the benefit of today’s tax practitioner who may not be familiar with the complexities of labor law.

"The CCH Practical Guide to Tax Issues in Employment is unusual because it covers complex subject matter right at the intersection of employment law and taxation," said Gail Portugal, federal tax marketing manager. "This concise, clear reference sets the standard for comprehensive, easy-to-use guidance for tax and legal advisors."

Comprehensive, In-depth Coverage

Critical issues and strategies covered in the Guide include:

  • Tax consequences in employment and labor law practice
  • Tax consequences of settlements and awards
  • Tax treatment for employers paying damage awards in various causes of action including antidiscrimination suits, unfair labor practices, Family and Medical Leave Act, collective bargaining, common-law torts, breach of contract actions, employee benefit claims and more
  • Attorney fees considerations
  • Withholding requirements under specific causes of action
  • Employee classifications and tax consequences

The helpful Guide also identifies planning opportunities in damage award situations, including how to structure damage awards and settlements to avoid or minimize tax.
