There are statutory benefits and those that are regulated by wage agreements and employment contracts. Employees are legally entitled to statutory benefits and those that are regulated by wage agreements. There is no such entitlement to benefits that are regulated by employment contracts, because these benefits are granted on a voluntary basis. Statutory benefits include the employer’s contribution to health insurance, long-term care insurance, pension scheme, unemployment insurance, sickness pay and maternity pay. Benefits regulated by wage agreements essentially include holiday entitlement, additional salary payments and any industry supplements. Benefits regulated by employment contracts may include a company pension scheme, workplace health promotion, training measures, continuing professional development programmes, and salary supplements (such as a company car and provision of a laptop for private use).
