Generally, there are no laws that require an employer to provide any employees with fringe benefits, such as vacations, sick leave, health insurance, pensions or profit-sharing plans. But if the employer does provide those benefits, they cannot be provided discriminatorily, which means that an employee cannot be denied benefits or receive lower benefits because of his or her age, disability, race, color, sex, national origin, or religion.
