Employees' medical expenses are covered by the National Insurance scheme, so health insurance is not required by law. Private insurance, on the other hand, is available throughout the country. An employer may choose to provide additional private insurance to employees, but it is frequently expensive and inaccessible to the general public.
Any other additional benefits and bonuses will be outlined in collective agreements. While Guyana is a South American country, unlike many of its neighbors, it does not require a 13th-month bonus. An employer, on the other hand, may choose to provide one.
