Employee benefits are perks that you receive apart from your regular salary either mandated by law or given by the company to make their position seem more competitive to a potential employee. They are part of your compensation package when you start a new job. But there are some benefits that required by law to be given to every one of the employees like minimum wage, overtime, disability and worker compensations.
In addition to these federally compulsory benefits, there are also other benefits a company may give its employees out of social obligation to its employee or keep their employees from being snatched away by rival companies. One of these benefits is legal benefits plan which deals with giving employees an affordable way to prevent or resolve their legal troubles.
A good legal benefit plan must have the following features for it to a viable choice for companies to consider putting them in their benefits package:
• Quality Attorneys: It is only worth using the benefit if it is backed up by quality attorneys who have proven track records. Anything less than the industry’s leading attorneys is not worth it.
• Customer Service: These services should be easy to reach and must convey useful information, often being very important information. For this, they should have a quality customer service that is available and helpful to whatever query you may have.
• Low Premiums: For companies to consider putting legal services in benefit packages, they must have the lowest premiums compared to their competitors while still offering satisfactory results.
• Extensive Coverage: The sign of a great legal benefit plan is the ability to tailor it to the needs of the employees and offer a wide coverage to deal with almost any kind of situation.
A company might consider using a service like this because if an employee is bogged down by legal trouble, it might get translated into the workplace in the form of wasted time, poor performance, increase in healthcare related costs, or even just straight up absenteeism of the employee. Having a voluntary choice to receive such a perk, will put their minds at ease knowing that they have good help with their legal matters and would be more productive than without it.
Finally, as previously mentioned having more benefits means that an employee is more likely to join your company and is more likely to stay. Having a legal benefit plan for your employees can really elevate your compensation package and turn a position at your company more desirable.
