Acquired Employees for AAP

Anonymous - Mar 13, 2018
Back to Ask the Experts

We’ve acquired a smaller company and will be retaining some of their employees. In an older post, it is stated that there is little guidance on how to handle these situations yet most companies choose to treat acquired employees as new hires. However, in our HRIS they will retain their seniority dates from prior to the acquisition.

Is it still best to categorize them as new hires or would it be better to simply list them in the employee population? Would the latter cause a disconnect with our previous plan year, since these employee’s would ‘magically’ appear in the population? Could it be simply noted that they are acquired?

Additionally, are we responsible for collecting and including the acquired organization’s applicant data for our AAP?
