Antigua and Barbuda labor regulations require businesses to pay 3.5 percent of each employee's salary to the Medical Benefits Scheme for health care services for workers under the age of 60. The proportion provided by workers over the age of 60, on the other hand, varies from time to time but is usually equal to 3.5 percent. Medical Benefits Scheme Field Officers have the authority to visit any company at any time to check compliance or examine records.
Employers must additionally contribute 8% of their monthly salary to the Social Security program. Employees make up 6% of the total.
There are no legal obligations for companies to give incentives, but firms may include them in their benefits package to attract more applicants.
