PSAB initiated the Employment Benefits project to:

  • consider the major areas of differences between its standards that address employment benefits and equivalent standards issued by other standard setters
  • address the accounting for benefit plans introduced in the public sector in recent years to share more risk between the employer/sponsor and plan members

The project’s first document — Invitation to Comment, Employment Benefits: Deferral Provisions in Sections PS 3250 and PS 3255 — is currently open for public comment.

You’ll hear directly from members of the Employment Benefits Task Force about this project and the Invitation to Comment document.
