  • PTO Benefits Michigan

    I work for a homecare agency, with full and part time employees. The owner has been asked to offer PTO to employees that work at a particular client. THe owner has agreeded to offer PTO to the employees that work at this one client's residence, but he wasn't going to offer this benefit to the other staff who work at different clients. Is this legal? Does he have to offer PTO to all the staff, or can he be particular to the employees that he offers PTO to?

    As long as who the benefit is offered to is not based on a protected characteristic, such as age, gender, race, religion, etc., yes, the employer can offer benefits to one "class" of employees and not another. In this case, a class that is "employee's working for XXX client" is a perfectly legal "class".
