Constructing an Employee Benefit Package for Part-Time Workers. A Rationale for Arriving at an Equitable Benefit Package at No Extra Cost to the Employer. A Catalyst Position Paper.
Catalyst, New York, NY.
Guidelines are presented for constructing an employee benefit package for part-time workers in which benefits are calculated on a pro-rated (and sometimes selective) basis, such that part-time employees receive a fair proportion of the total benefit package, based on the number of hours they actually work. Pro-rating is recommended as feasible for computing all compensatory and most supplementary benefits, and, where it is not possible, an optional approach of flexible compensation is suggested in which each employee may "spend" a certain percentage of salary on benefits of his or her choice. Specific statutory, compensatory, and supplementary benefits are discussed in relationship to development of the total benefits package. (JT)
