    Benefits eligibility typically depends upon company policy.

    MA law does not require employers to provide benefits to their employees (although there are a few bills pending in the State House dealing with health insurance, some of which, if passed, will require employers to provide health insurance).

    BUT, if an employer does provide benefits to their employees, then both federal law (ERISA) and MA law have rules regarding non-discrimination, eligibility, maintenance, probationary periods, etc.

    Employee Handbooks and benefit plans usually explain eligibility rules. Employees shoud ask their supervisor or HR for this information, although its usually provided shortly after the start date.

    I work at a non-profit organization as a lifeguard (YWCA). Does anyone know how many hours per week one has to work before you can legally be eligible for benefits? I currently work between 37.5 and 40 hrs per week and am receiving no sick time, no vacation time and no insurance benefits. Any info. provided would be helpful. Thank you. The state is Massachusetts
