As many of you know, the employer penalty proposed regulations require crediting of hours of service for periods during which the employee is not actively at work. Currently, the proposed regulations do not contain any maximum time limit or cap on this credit, which could lead to situations where employers must credit hours of service for years or decades after an employee has stopped actively working. Today we filed comments with the IRS that will hopefully encourage the Service to place a cap on this crediting rule. Our comments are located here.
While we are pleased to have you contact us by telephone, surface mail, electronic mail, or by facsimile transmission, contacting Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP or any of its attorneys does not create an attorney-client relationship. The formation of an attorney-client relationship requires consideration of multiple factors, including possible conflicts of interest. An attorney-client relationship is formed only when both you and the Firm have agreed to proceed with a defined engagement.
