This Section prescribes the accounting treatment for employee future benefits provided by a not-for-profit organization. A not-for-profit organization is required to account for employee future benefits in accordance with Section 3462 Employee Future Benefits, in Part II of the Handbook, except as otherwise provided in this Section. This Section requires that a not-for-profit organization recognize "remeasurements and other items" directly in net assets in the statement of financial position rather than in the statement of operations, with no reclassification of such amounts to the statement of operations in a subsequent period.
