    Question Incentives for employers?

    A local businessman asked the other day if there were any write-offs or tax incentives for businesses that allowed employees to leave for a fire call. He realized that departments are shorthanded, especially during the daytime. He currently allows employees to respond, but he knows that it causes a drop in productivity which can affect the bottom line of a small business.
    Does anyone out there know of anything that is available out there on the state or federal level?

    In Wisconsin there is not such law to give employers an incentive to let employees respond from work to fires. It is out of the kindness of their heart to do this.

    Now whenever there is a fund raiser type of thing, my department has given a little free advertisement for that particular employer who has done that in the past for our memebers. No one really makes a big deal out of it in this area.

    Kinda sounds to me like this employer wants to save a few bucks for doing this. Kinda cheap to me I think.
