TORONTO – Human resources firm Morneau Shepell has signed a deal to acquire the U.S. health and welfare benefits administration business of Ceridian.

Financial terms of the agreement were not immediately available.

The deal will see more than 100 Ceridian employees join Morneau Shepell as the company grows its U.S. business.

The deal is expected to close on July 31.
