Premium Pay

Premium Pay is additional compensation for “eligible workers performing essential work during the COVID-19 public health emergency or to provide grants to third-party employers [non-municipal employees] with eligible workers performing essential work” for recognition of their sacrifices over the last year. Eligible workers may be provided “extra” or “premium” pay in addition to their regular salaries based on hours worked. Documentation is required. The League does not recommend Premium Pay at this time. Instead, we recommend bonuses under Expenditure Category 6: Revenue Replacement (lost revenue).
