(A) are therefore not subject to being withheld
(B) the employee therefore is not subject to their being withheld
(C) they therefore are not subject to be withheld
(D) therefore they cannot withhold them
(E) therefore cannot be withheld

(B) changes the meaning of the sentence
(C), (D) and (E) all introduce problems with pronouns and their antecedents

Between (A) and (E), (E) is better. In (A), are, not subject all can be removed without changing the essence of the sentence.

Could you tell me whether choice E changes the original meaning?

I mean are "be subject to" and "cannot" the same?

I will go with A. Cannot be withheld changes the meaning since the pension is usually regarded as ...... It means that it can be withheld but usually the companies don't.
