Discuss your views about whether discretionary employee benefits should be an entitlement or something earned based on job performance. Discretionary employee benefits, which are ones not mandated by law, include: Vacation leave, sick leave, dental insurance, 401(K) plans, vision insurance, pensions, health insurance, and prescription drug insurance. Social security and medicare aren't discretionary as they are required by law. I hate to say that we are entitled to receive these discretionary benefits, but I think that in order for companies to be competitive, to attract good employees, and to retain good employees, they need to offer them - or a majority of them. I do think that initially an employee has to earn it. This would fall into a companies 3 month waiting period - to be sure that they are good fit for the company able to perform the job required. After that time, I believe that all or some of these benefits are necessary to help families provide for their families.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
