12. Employee benefit plans
The Company provides a 401(k) retirement plan covering all employees who qualify as to age and length of service. The plan is funded through employee contributions and a Company match. In fiscal 2016, 2015 and 2014, the Company match was 100% of the first 3.0% of eligible compensation. As of January 28, 2017 and January 30, 2016, the liability for the Company match was $6,317 and $5,031, respectively.
The Company also has a non-qualified deferred compensation plan for highly compensated employees whose contributions are limited under qualified defined contribution plans. The plan is funded through employee contributions and a Company match. In fiscal 2016, 2015 and 2014, the Company match was 100% of the first 3.0% of salary. For fiscal year 2016 and 2015, the liability for the Company match was $753 and $554, respectively. Amounts contributed and deferred under the plan are credited or charged with the performance of investment options offered under the plan as elected by the participants. In the event of bankruptcy, the assets of this plan are available to satisfy the claims of general creditors. The liability for compensation deferred under the Company’s plan included in other long-term liabilities was $10,474 and $7,491 as of January 28, 2017 and January 30, 2016, respectively. The Company manages the risk of changes in the fair value of the liability for deferred compensation by electing to match its liability under the plan with investment vehicles that offset a substantial portion of its exposure. The cash value of the investment vehicles included in deferred compensation plan assets was $11,283 and $8,145 as of January 28, 2017 and January 30, 2016, respectively. Total expense recorded under this plan is included in selling, general and administrative expenses and was insignificant during fiscal 2016 and 2015.
