I want to be a part-time lover

Like most organizations, my company is very stingy when it comes to giving benefits to part-time workers. I'm looking for the best arguments -- moral, financial, practical, or otherwise -- for granting these important employees paid time off in particular (for illnesses, vacation, holidays, bereavement, etc.) "Best" meaning arguments that would be understood and ideally persuasive to management.

The best I've come up with so far is "presenteeism", where sick workers without benefits feel compelled to show up, potentially sharing any contagious illnesses with their co-workers.
Grateful for any leads and/ or search tips!
