Hazard Pay Update

Attendants who worked anytime between March 12, 2020, and June 30, 2020, will receive a hazard payment of $1,500. The $1,500 is the amount before any taxes are taken out.  This will be a one-time payment. 

In order to be included in the hazard payment, the attendant must have:

  • Worked during this time period; and
  • Turned in the time worked and received payment

Attendants must act now if they worked during the time period and have not turned in any of that time for payment.   The deadline is 5:00 pm Friday, October 30, 2020 to turn in this time and have it approved. Time submitted after the deadline will not be used to qualify the attendant for the hazard payment even if they worked during the right time period.

Payments will be made after January 1, 2021. More information will be sent out soon.
