Employer-provided benefits such as paid time off and medical insurance are some of the additional ways workers are compensated in today’s workplace. The frequency and types of benefits offered vary by industry and firm size. Benefits are more common in some industrial sectors than in others, full-time workers are more likely to have access to benefits than part-time workers and workers in larger establishments are more likely to be offered benefits than those in smaller establishments.  

Seventy-seven percent of Rhode Island firms provide paid time off (combinations of vacation, personal and sick leave) to their full-time workers and 73 percent offer health insurance to full-time workers. Retirement plans and dental insurance are offered by more than half of Rhode Island employers. Other benefits offered to full-time workers include life insurance (31%), tuition reimbursement (23%), and vision insurance (19%).
