benefits have been at the forefront of political debates and labor
negotiations for quite some time. The
lack of information relating to employee benefits has left
Rhode Island employers asking many questions regarding where they stand in comparison
with other employers in the state. Until now...
Rhode Island Department of Labor and Training, Labor Market Information
unit recently conducted a survey of businesses operating in
to determine the type and frequency of benefits offered to workers in
State. According to the survey, the most commonly offered benefits are Heath
Insurance and Vacation/Consolidated Paid leave, followed by Retirement
Plans and Dental Benefits.
2005 Rhode Island Employee Benefits Report provides interesting insight
into the types of benefits employers offer to full- and part-time
workers in the Ocean
State. It can be a valuable tool
for both employers and employees to use during contract negotiations and
for evaluating job offers.
Employee Benefits Report is based on a survey of nearly 2,000
private sector employers having three or more employees. The sampled
firms represented over 226,500 employees. Responses were received from
1,257 firms providing information for over 130,000 employees.
