17.1.2 Deferred Compensation – County Paid Program

Beginning Fiscal Year 2004-2005, Deferred Compensation of one-half percent (1/2%) for all eligible employees was re-directed towards the County cost of implementing the 3% at 60 Retirement benefit.

Employees may appeal to the Deferred Compensation Advisory Committee should they have a complaint regarding the administration of the program.

17.1.4 Deferred Compensation - Non-Grievability

The only Deferred Compensation issue that is grievable or arbitrable is whether the County has made its contribution.

17.1.5 Deferred Compensation - Program Modification

Nothing herein renders the County liable to the Council or any employee for a discontinuance of Internal Revenue Service or Franchise Tax Board approval of any County Deferred Compensation plan or portion thereof, or the employee becoming ineligible by law or the rules of the plan, to participate in the Deferred Compensation program(s).
