Employee Benefits

Employee Benefits

As an employer there are expectations to provide benefits that can enrich the lives of employees. Some employers cannot afford to give their employees benefits like Medical Aid, Pension / Provident fund, etc. because of the nature or size of their business, this has disadvantages for both the employer and the employee as the employee’s income will be reduced due to monthly deduction for the repayment of a loan or the employee can leave employment without having fully repaid their loan.
