Dear Villis,

Fringe benefits are compensations made to an employee beyond the regular benefit of being paid for their work. Some fringe benefits are fairly standard, such as offering a few days of sick time or paid vacation time. Others can be significantly greater, and more rare. Key executives in large companies might also enjoy fringe benefits like use of time-share condominiums, paid continuing education, use of a company car, use of a company credit card, discounted or free health club memberships, and a significant amount of paid vacation.

Sometimes the fringe benefits turn out to be greatly needed. For example, the rising cost of private health insurance often makes obtaining a job with a good health plan highly desirable. Programs like 401ks can help employees save money for the future. Where job compensation is not commensurate with money needed to live comfortably, housing allowances, or company housing can often make the difference between being able to take a job and looking elsewhere.

Some companies also pay fringe benefits for those who work night or swing shifts. These fringe benefits may be in the nature of a 10—30% increase of base pay for working a non-standard shift. This is called a shift differential and is quite common in the medical field and in manufacturing.
