The Distribution of Family Oriented Benefits.
EBRI Issue Brief, n130 Oct 1992
This issue of a monthly newsletter is devoted to an overview of employee benefits that assist families, including child care, extended unpaid personal leave, and flexible work options. Findings are discussed from a recent study analyzing the distribution of two of those family benefits (child care assistance and flexible work practices) among working women with children under age 13. Four types of child care assistance are examined: on-site child care, information and referral services, financial assistance to help cover the costs of child care (such as vouchers), and pre-tax flexible spending accounts. Flexible work options include part-time work, unpaid extended leave, work at home, and flextime. An assessment is made regarding whether the differences noted among workers receiving the most common employee benefits, such as health and pensions, are reflected in the distribution of family benefits.
