Employer HSA Contributions
Our company offers an HSA plan and at the beginning of every year the employer funds 100% of their contribution to the employees' accounts. If an employee terminates sometime during the plan year, can the employer recoup any portion their contribution? In other words, on January 2, 2009, the employer contributes $1,000 to an employees HSA account and say that employee terminates July 2, 2009, can the employer deduct $500 from the employees' final paycheck?
