Updated to reflect the increase to the statutory maternity pay rate from 5 April 2020.
Away from health-related benefits, company cars and pensions, there are a host of other benefits available to employers to boost the package they offer to employees. We investigate some of the other benefits available.
Updated to include information on the closure of childcare voucher schemes to new entrants.
We examine the provision of some of the wide range of benefits and allowances offered by respondents to XpertHR's research, including childcare benefits, long-service awards, charity days, location allowances, and standby and call-out payments.
In Peninsula Business Services Ltd v Donaldson EAT/0249/15, the EAT held that childcare vouchers under a salary-sacrifice scheme constitute "remuneration", with the result that there is no legal obligation to continue their provision during maternity leave.
