Employee benefits

For many employers, offering up an excellent benefits package is one way to keep employees sticking around or entice new ones. Some companies think they can’t afford a benefit package, while it may look good for the budget in the short term, long term you could be harming your business by missing out on talented employees because you are not offering a competitive benefits package.

Many of the ideal candidates believe they are entitled to specific perks including medical insurance, but many job applicants also like to see a retirement plan and disability insurance.

Offering these types of benefits will get the right candidates through the door and help boost your business. By giving your employees the benefits they value, they’ll be more content, miss fewer days of work, be less likely to quit, and have a stronger desire to be a team player with a willingness to meet company’s goals.

Here are some things you must know about offering your employees a benefits package.

Know Your Benefit Basics

The law mandates all employers to provide employees with particular benefits, such as:

  • Allow employees the time off to vote, serve on a jury and perform military service.
  • Follow all state workers’ compensation requirements.
  • Deduct FICA taxes from employees’ paychecks and contribute your own portion of FICA taxes, providing employees with retirement and disability benefits.
  • Providing benefits for unemployed workers by paying into state and federal unemployment taxes.
  • Pay into state short-term disability programs in states that have them.
  • Follow the Federal Family and Medical Leave (FMLA) regulations.

You do not have to provide:
