SPS Surveys Employers and HR about Health Care Benefits

Health Care Benefits Survey

Health care costs are out of control. Massachusetts just enacted a law imposing a $295 per employee fee on every employer if they didn’t provide employee benefits. Maryland hopes to require private companies with more than 10,000 employees to spend at least 8 percent of their payroll on employee health benefits or make a contribution to the state’s insurance program for the poor. Employers
are telling employees to stop smoking and lose weight or pay more for these health care coverage.

Are these states and employers on the right track or are they headed down a slippery slope?

Please take a few minutes and share your opinions in this short HR Health Care Benefits survey. Results will be published in an upcoming issue of The Total View.

    I do believe that all employees are entitled to at least basic health care coverage but I hesitate to endorse the kind of step taken by Massachusetts as this might just put some struggling companies right out of business!
