SECTION B. GRANT-FUNDED INCOME/IMPACT ON PRE-TAX BENEFITS
During an Employee's period of employment, they may be funded from a grant from which no income taxes are withheld. In this situation, the Employee may not be able to enroll in, or continue to participate in, some Flex Benefits, which are provided on a pre-tax basis. Without income tax being withheld, there is no basis for providing a pre-tax benefit.
The Employer will communicate the implications of the training grant funding on the Employee's tax liability and benefit eligibility during their initial orientation. Further, all House Officers will receive information regarding this situation annually with their Open Enrollment materials.
