Should the most highly regulated benefits be linked to individual, group and/or organization performance? Why or why not?

 

 

Many benefits are not required by law but are common in workplaces today. These include accidental death and dismemberment insurance, some form of retirement plan (including profit-sharing, stock option programs, 401(k), and employee stock ownership plans), vacation and holiday pay, and sick leave. Some companies also offer various services, such as day care either free or at a reduced cost. It is also common to provide employees with discounted services or products offered by the company itself.
In addition, there are certain benefits that are required by either state or federal law. Federal law, for example, requires the employer to pay into Social Security, and unemployment insurance is mandated under OASDHI. State laws govern workers™ compensation plans.

Even though benefits are costly for organizations and are a large percentage of their labor costs, many people do not believe employers receive an adequate return on what they have invested in the benefits.
