Download (pdf)

Employee 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...  

The Rhode Island Department of Labor and Training, Labor Market Information unit recently conducted a survey of businesses operating in Rhode Island to determine the type and frequency of benefits offered to workers in the Ocean 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.  

The 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.  

This Employee Benefits Report is based on a survey of nearly 2,000 Rhode Island 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.
