Fringe Benefits for Non-Teaching Employees in American Universities.
Smith, Edwin R.; And Others
A survey was undertaken by the Office of Institutional Research and the Department of Education Administration at West Virginia University to determine the range, alternatives, norms, and other major administration considerations relative to fringe benefits available to nonteaching employees in major American universities. A copy of the nonteaching employee handbook or policy statement in effect for the 1972-73 academic year was requested from 103 public and private universities. Eighty-four replies were received. A broad range of opportunities for employees was found in the handbooks. The investigators followed a guideline whereby they differentiated between a benefit and an opportunity. If a service or opportunity was made available to an employee free, or at a rate less than that available to the general public, it was not designated as a fringe benefit. The various benefits were placed into four major economic classifications: retirement, leave, insurance, and other economic benefits. The main purpose of this research was to ascertain the range, alternatives, and norms of the four major economic considerations. This booklet should be a valuable source for use in formal or informal negotiations with nonteaching employees. (Author)
