Other Benefits


"Other Benefits" include a host of incentives provided by agreement between an employer and an employee (or the employee's representative). Most of these benefits are not required by law.

Individual states, however, may require employers to provide with some of these benefits. It is important for employers and employees to check with their state's department of labor to check appropriate requirements.

The Employee Benefits Survey (EBS) of the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) covers the incidence and characteristics of many such employee benefits.

The Office of Compliance Assistance policy offers additional information on leave benefits and compliance assistance.
