Beyond salaries or other base compensation, employees are often provided benefits and incentive compensation to entice them to accept an offer and/or increase performance. At IBL, we counsel our clients as to the different categories and requirements of benefits and incentive compensation to assist them in designing benefits and compensation plans, as to the benefits and compensation of a particular individual, or from the employee or contractor side, to help them negotiate and make an informed decision as to whether to accept a particular offer.
