Rob,

There is a nontrival cost (in time, money, and paperwork) to add a new employee to the plan. The company decided that people who are going to quit are more likely to quit between hiring and 1 year than between 1 year and 2 years. So they avoid signing up people for the plan who are likely to quit.
