Makati Mayor Abby Binay has approved the grant of hazard pay and special risk allowance to city hall employees who serve at the frontlines amid the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) crisis.

Binay recently signed City Ordinance No. 2020-092, which sets aside a P124.5-million budget for the additional benefit to be given to frontliners.

The hazard pay and special risk allowance will be given to regular, casual and contractual workers of the city hall who continue to report for work amid the Luzon-wide enhanced community quarantine.

The frontliners who will benefit from the ordinance include members of Makati’s Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office, as well as healthcare workers.

Binay said she is thankful for the sacrifices of city hall employees who continue to work despite the risk posed by COVID-19. She said they deserve additional pay because of their hard work.
