DH is receiving full salary for the two-year period during which he is considered an "employee-consultant." Last year, he was able to contribute to his 401K. This year, he gets a letter telling him that "due to a change in IRS regulations," he can no longer contribute to his 401K.

I'm not aware of anything, but that doesn't mean there wasn't something. Were I he, I'd start by asking what regulations changed.

It may wind up that he needs to consult a lawyer to find out if the company is breaching his separation agreement.
