Fringe Benefits Provision by Rural Small Businesses

Fringe Benefits Provision by Rural Small Businesses We examine the relationship between employer size and the provision of fringe benefits in a large sample of rural businesses. A clear employer size‐benefits relationship exists only in the case of health insurance, while other benefits are not strongly linked to employer size. The negative relationship between employer size and health insurance is weaker, though still existent, in businesses whose employees have relatively high skill levels. Single, independent establishments and sole proprietorships are less likely to provide fringe benefits than multi‐establishment and corporate firms. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png American Journal of Agricultural Economics Wiley

Abstract

We examine the relationship between employer size and the provision of fringe benefits in a large sample of rural businesses. A clear employer size‐benefits relationship exists only in the case of health insurance, while other benefits are not strongly linked to employer size. The negative relationship between employer size and health insurance is weaker, though still existent, in businesses whose employees have relatively high skill levels. Single, independent establishments and sole proprietorships are less likely to provide fringe benefits than multi‐establishment and corporate firms.
