Benefits for International Staff

There are two main types of benefit which you may be asked to consider.  These are:

    1. Special Rest and Relaxation Leave (R & R)
    2. Hardship/Hazard Pay

On the pages linked above we give a simple explanation of each with excerpts from the policy statements, give you some factors to consider when deliberating about instituting them, and list some of the decisions and actions you must undertake in order to implement either or both.

Your role as an Emergency First Responder is to consider the situation and make a recommendation on these policies to the CR or Regional Office.   You’ll then get the written approval of the CR, RD and any HQ approvals necessary before implementing.
