Educational Assistance

Educational assistance is a financial investment to both the employer and employees. From the employer’s perspective, “Job related educational expenses, may be excluded from employee’s gross income under Section 127 of the Internal Revenue Code or as a “working condition fringe benefit under Code 132.”  Providing educational assistance may benefit the employer by keeping employees current on changes in the industry.  Most employers reimburse when the class or seminar is directly related to an employee’s job duties primarily due to tax laws. Some work-related educational benefits include the following:

  • Seminars or workshops

  • Vendor sponsored schools or programs

  • Non-college credit continuing education courses

  • Apprenticeship training on various trades or crafts
