kbodleyWe are a non profit, and several years ago a former board promoted a current employee to a manager position. In the notice of promotion letter to the employee is the new salary level and a statement that we would provide insurance coverage for the employee and dependents. We have decided to discontinue group coverage (as we only had two employees covered) and the manager is maintaining that because the letter received four years ago includes insurance coverage, we are required to maintain the same coverage. Are we? State Law in Oregon states that small businesses are not required to provide insurance.

Dinesh DivekarDear Kbodley,
Since you are from the state of Oregon, USA, the labour consultants or HR consultants from that area will be able to give you right advice. I am moving this thread to USA category.
As far as insurance coverage is concerned, it is one of the perk of employment. Conditions and perks of employment can be changed too. There are cases wherein facilities that were provided earlier were withdrawn later. However, it is better to consult with local consultant as stated earlier.
