Other Benefits

Scheduled Maintenance

The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) is conducting scheduled system maintenance starting Friday, February 15 at 5:00 p.m. ET through Tuesday, February 19 at 8:00 a.m. ET. Most DOL websites and web systems will be affected and unavailable to the public. The National Contact Center remains open 24 hours a day to contact Job Corps (1-800-733-5627), MSHA (1-800-746-1553), and OSHA (1-800-321-6742).

"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. In addition to the subtopics listed on this page, you may also want to know more about Unemployment Insurance or Workers' Compensation, covered under other topics. 

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.
