Here in NYS, your employer is not required to give any benefits
beyond those mandated by law. Worker's Comp and Fed & State Unemployment
Insurance, and I think disability, are mandated by law.
Your employer is *not* required to give you any benefits--health
insurance, sick time, paid vacation time.
The only other law that I can think of that applies is the law
that, unless you're an "exempt" employee, you have to be paid time and a
half for any time worked over 40 hours a week. "Exempt" traditionally
includes managers and engineers and "professionals."
I got my info from the NYS Dept of Labor. Check in your state if
this stuff interests you.
