ThreeFebruary 2018 Employer Reminder:
Evaluate positions yearly for IMRF participation
It is an Authorized Agent's responsibility to ensure there is an annual review of all positions for IMRF participation. This is a very significant responsibility that should never be neglected.
Changes in the work responsibilities and hours of a position often affect whether those positions qualify for IMRF. Review IMRF's hourly qualifications and measurement considerations, as well as the necessary steps should a position require reclassification in the February 2018 Employer Reminder.
