Absolutely. In fact, a great way to attract employees is to provide a benefits package that can include health and life insurance. The employer may generally require the participating employees to contribute to the premiums.

There are no state or federal laws that require your employer to offer health insurance. They can decide to offer plans to full time employees only. They can decide to offer to salaried employees only.

Probably, he's required by the insurance company to insure at least 75% of the employees or else the other employees can't get the plan. For more information see the link

No, it does require at 100% though. Insurance Companies generally require that an employer cover at least 75% of the employees. Those covered under other spousal plans don't count in the calculation.

Some companies get better insurance rates if they require all employees to buy health insurance. IT is cheaper because the insurance company is not covering just the people that need it or use it.
