(a)Leases - refer to footnote 2
(b)Legal Proceedings
The Company is involved in various claims and legal actions arising in the ordinary course of business. The Company’s loss contingencies not discussed elsewhere consist primarily of claims and legal actions arising in the normal course of business related to contingent worker employment matters in the staffing services business. These matters are at varying stages of investigation, arbitration or adjudication. The Company has accrued for losses on individual matters that are both probable and reasonably estimable.
Estimates are based on currently available information and assumptions. Significant judgment is required in both the determination of probability and the determination of whether a matter is reasonably estimable. The Company’s estimates may change and actual expenses could differ in the future as additional information becomes available.

(c)    Other Matters

As previously disclosed in the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended October 28, 2018, certain qualification failures related to nondiscrimination testing for the Company’s 401(k) plans consisting of the (1) Volt Technical Services Savings Plan and the (2) Volt Information Sciences, Inc. Savings Plan occurred during plan years prior to 2016. The Company has obtained the approval from the Internal Revenue Service regarding the method for curing the failures and made a contribution of $0.8 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019.
