Michigan Prevailing Wage Clarification

May 31, 2013 Written by: Written by Mike Rogers, Chief Compliance Officer

For the past two years, Fringe Benefit Group has worked to get clarification from the state of Michigan regarding whether full credit can be taken for retirement plan contributions made on an hourly basis.

Fringe Benefit Group sent letters in June 2011 and December 2012 to the Director of the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs of the Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration requesting clarification. We received a letter in January from Martha B. Yoder, Director of the Department, confirming that the Division allows the full credit for contributions to a retirement plan that are paid on an hourly basis.
