Laws that Mandate Certain Benefits

There are certain employee benefits, above and beyond wages, that are legally required of all employers. These include social security contributions, federal and state unemployment insurance, and worker’s compensation. The unemployment insurance program was established under Title IX of the federal Social Security Act of 1935 (42 USC 1101), which also governs social security contributions. Minimum working conditions and working environments are mandated by the federal Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA).
